Snow Falls at Skylands

Skylands, my home in Maine, is under nearly three-feet of snow.

These past couple of weeks have been very challenging for residents in the Northeast after two strong nor’easters barreled through the region. Yesterday, I shared photos of my Bedford, New York farm after the most recent weather system dropped several more inches on the already white landscape. Unfortunately, the snow totals were drastically different up at Skylands - this week, more than 24-inches fell with three to five foot snow drifts. Despite its beauty, all the snow makes clean-up quite difficult. My Skylands crew has been very busy plowing the carriage roads, shoveling the walkways and terraces, and clearing any areas that may be subject to leaking or flooding because of the heavy accumulation - it's a tedious and necessary task.

Cheryl Dulong, who works at Skylands, and my property director, Fred Jacobsen, who is up there for the week, took some photos to show me “what a difference a few days make” - enjoy.
