The last of 2007's storms

We woke up to another big snow storm, I've lost count of how many there have been in December and there is another predicted for tomorrow, but that will be January. I'll keep taking pictures like the one here throughout the winter to measure the snow against the raspberry bushes.

As the snow falls and the year draws to a close, I am thinking of some of the personal highlights for this year. The problem with naming them, is that I will surely miss some important ones. Send yours or any of mine that I missed along as a comment or an e-mail if you like.
  • Winter hike up Cannon Mountain with E and the WPI TKE's
  • Hike to Angel Falls to watch A climb the ice
  • Seeing E get the President's Award at WPI for his work in Namibia
  • Nordic skiing at Mont Sainte Anne in Quebec with C
  • State Nordic meet at Presque Isle with M
  • Titus Andronicus with S and C in Washington, DC
  • Screaming in the bleachers at Yankee Stadium when A-Rod hit a walk-off grand slam
  • E's graduation from WPI
  • M's high school graduation
  • E's wedding to the lovely, kind and brilliant Ann(a Kentucky girl!)
  • Higgins reunion in Hopkinsville, Kentucky
  • C's performance at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville
  • Hiking 28 of the 4000 footers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine
  • Finishing Harry Potter by head lamp in a tent in Baxter State Park
  • Taking the girls to college
  • E's happiness with his first engineering job
  • S's happiness at the prospect of the Peace Corps after graduation
  • Thanksgiving with all the kids
  • The health and happiness of my parents
