Berkshires Icestorm in the bleak midwinter

Copake, NY - recent ice storm
Winter is not over yet.  Our friend Reiner took this picture from his living room window.  What a view! It's great in the fall and summer, too.  What could be better to contemplate in late winter (the ugliest season)  than a Tanglewood concert and picnic with a bottle of wine and some delicious comestibles.   And the music.  But no James Levine this year, sob. 

We're over the hump, now, with winter, which makes the cold and dreariness so much more unbearable.  Thoughts turn to Florida, and Puerto Rico.  I would love to be in Cartagena this week, strolling through the old city and along the waterfront, wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunscreen.  Isn't it lovely to contemplate?
