Cy suggested that given the warm temps maybe we should do some water sports. I thought maybe a swim or Kayak at the lake. He had other ideas- hence the Birches Canal. This should make the lower Birches drier, and in wetter conditions be a venue for white water kayaking. And if you are looking for snow to ski on, there is enough along the Access road sides and likely in the field at Beech Hill, but will be better tomorrow once it cools off a bit.
