Shaping up to be another gorgeous day on the mountain. Sunshine goes a long way in energizing the spirit this time of year, and it certainly makes the solar panels happy. We’re still looking at about 1” of snow on the ground, and our early morning temp is nearing the freezing mark.

——————————————————-- Mountain By Benjamin J Spicer
Mountain you have yet to see The day that you have bested me I am still a worthy foe Though breathe comes quick and progress slow
Mountain you may think you've won Watching this exhausted one But I will stand upon your head And you will suffer loss Instead
Mountain you can laugh away I will conquer you today And when I rise and suffer through Tis I who'll smile and laugh at you
Mountain go ahead and vow That someday you will take me down This my friend shall never be You will never vanquish me
Mountain go ahead and glare I have water yet to spare For you my Sweet are just a hill And I am stronger better still
