The snow started falling Friday, as predicted. But what we got here in Northport was only a dusting. Just enough to whiten up the two-tracks.
And highlight the symmetrical rows of trees in the orchards.
Just enough to envelop the waterfall and the Mill Pond.
And surround the swaying ornamental grasses that edge the marina parking lot.
Just enough to fill the swampy land behind these roadside cattails.
And accentuate the banks of Northport Creek as it flows into the bay. Sometimes you don't get exactly what you hope for. But you learn to work with whatever you have.
