The first day of winter dawned warm and rainy - a balmy 62 degrees by 6:30am! In northeastern Pennsylvania that is close to a record high for this time of year. For me winter, warm or not, is a time for reflection and study. The quiet of the farm gives me time indoors to read and catch up on my research.
