The Week In Review - The Winter Never Ends

Good morning from Woodstock, Maine where the winter seems to never end. Twice this week we woke up to a few inches of new snow. The upside to the never-ending winter is that we have plenty of snow for skiing. Skiing is what I'll do after creating a list of the week's most popular posts. Wherever you are and whatever the weather is like, I hope that you have something planned for your weekend too.
