Once again I joined a large group of folks in celebrating Thanksgiving in the woods the farm of friends. It’s always a wonderful event, which combines great food and the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones in a beautiful natural setting. A big question this year involved the weather. Snow fell on the higher elevations around the New York Capital District a few days earlier, and some light snow, sleet and rain were reportedly possible during the day. Thankfully the weather held off until after we ate, and even then the hemlock woods provided a natural covering. All in all, it was a great time.
