The Adirondack Lifestyle on a Stormy Day

Living in the Adirondacks requires one to know when to do, and when to respect nature, hunker down, and ride it out. Today is a day for the latter approach to life. As expected, a warm front racing across the Adirondacks is creating 55-plus-mph winds and driving sleet. The trees who survived last week's wind pummeling seem to be hanging on for dear life, bending and flexing their top branches and torsos as much as 90 degrees in deference to the wind.
A cup of tea, warm fire, and a book or project are in order on Adirondack days like this. There is no reason to try and fight the storm seeking to ski or hike, or even run errands. It is a good time to take a page from the resident gnome's book and live in harmony with nature: stay tucked inside, cozy and warm.
