Northern Maine. It looks like the Shire. Come to think of it, most of my relatives
up there look like Hobbits.

Western New York"...well, in reverse i guess. Definitely a song all upstate
NYers would apreciate (http://www.darwilliams.net/music/mortalcity.html).
I'm also loving this winter. Finally got to use my cross-country skis. I
love watching my dog bound through the snow looking like she's swimming. And
it also means that the reservoir won't be just a muddy puddle this year. My
only complaint is the cold and the fact that on the rare occasions that it
gets above 10F it starts snowing again.
