Yes, this winter has been one for the books. The mid-Hudson area received 37.5″ of snow in February, while the average snowfall for the ENTIRE winter is 38.9″ – and yes, we know February is a short month. Karen has been out and about climbing the Catskills’ beautiful snow-covered peaks and guests are busy skiing and snow shoeing and spending nights really enjoying their warm, in-room fireplaces. Nothing like snuggling indoors, relaxing, taking time to decompress and truly treasure the warmth of the moment. And now the sun will be out even longer as day-light savings happens on Saturday. That slow-melt that defines seasonal shifts will become the norm and before we know it, crocuses will be abloom. Spring is around the corner.
