Back From Masardis

I’m back from Masardis, having done most of the legwork needed to move our programs there.  I was also able to witness how much snow they’ve got on the ground.  My guess is somewhere between three and four feet on the ground, plus another ten inches that fell while I was there.  So because of the snow depth, we’re going to start the spring semester here in Wolfeboro and move it up there when the snow melts to a more reasonable depth.  My guess on this happening is between two and four weeks, but then again mother nature hasn’t been overly interested in fulfilling my prognostications for the last few months.

We’re still covered in snow as well, but the temperatures are supposed to warm up this week.    We still have several feet of snow on the ground, but hopefully after a week we’ll be down to 1-2 feet so we won’t need snowshoes to get around.  Staying here for the first few weeks will also give us the opportunity to fish for smelt, carve fish spears and use them on the April sucker run, and work on a bunch of other things that being on Rust Pond facilitates.  So I’m excited about the opportunities afforded by starting the course here and finishing in Masardis.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
