In the North Country February is the longest, shortest month of the year. It’s like winter limbo; stuck between seasons. It can be 30 below, a howling blizzard or as depicted here, a few days stretch of mild snowless weather, when you may actually be able to do some outside work, but don’t count on it.
Out of the bosom of the Air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Snowflakes
