Hi everyone. Happy March to you! I'm excited for spring to be getting closer, although as I have written many times before, one never knows if March will be spring or if it will still be winter here in New Hampshire. Either way, this is usually the last tough month of weather to get through, and some years it isn't very tough at all.
Last week besides a couple days of light snow, we had some sunny weather and even some much warmer days compared to the rest of February. It was really nice to see blue sky, and since I was tired of the same scenery, I went for three little road trips. I live in great part of New Hampshire because, as some of you have asked, I can be at the ocean in an hour or less (30 minutes depending where I go), and I can be in the mountains in about an hour also. It just depends which direction I drive.
Thought I'd take you along for some views this week for T. Be sure to stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog where we share our weekly drink related post.
A week ago Sunday we had some beautiful blue skies. The temperatures were in the high 20's (around -2 or -1 degrees C) so it was still a little chilly. It was a good day to sit in a warm car though, even better because the sun was streaming through the windows. I dragged the hubby along for a ride, although that didn't take much arm twisting, and we headed north for a mountain drive.
We decided to take a drive along the Kancamagus Highway, locally called the Kanc. It is a little over 56 mile drive through mostly National Forest. We drove to and started at the west end, which is further from our house. We drove east and ended up with the shorter drive home, although I completely forgot about Sunday afternoon ski traffic. I don't suppose either way I went would have lessened that, but it was still a beautiful drive.
And how about this snowbank in one of the plowed pull offs?
