We asked for snow and it came, in the form of a blizzard and power outages. For two days we bunkered down in the smallest portion of our house, staying warm by lighting the gas stove every so often. It was wonderful, even though it put me behind on work. We spent an entire day wandering around and building a Quinzhee (that was mostly Zak, Odin and I were terrible helpers). First thing in the morning, I told Z that I really wanted to head out to Squam Swamp. It’s the most magical place on island and I’d never seen it coated in snow. Just as I had thought, it was just as magical, if not more so.
