Questions Welcome

If anyone wants to pose a rock pile related question, please email rockpilesmail@gmail.com and I will post the question to the blog where people can try to answer it in comments.

My question: Up here in Concord, MA there are enough inches of snow to make walking still a bit difficult. What are the snow conditions south of the Mass Pike?

No snow cover down here in Rhode Island.We had 2 inches Sunday night, but it's all gone now. Mid 40's today with rain.

I'd tell you what the conditions are here, after all I am south of the Mass Pike -- but it would just make you hate me.

Love the playa, hate the game.

I'm finding that the snow sort of puts a different perspective on things - like an unexpected bonus. Larger stones on the sunny side that are snow free show up and photograph well against the snow. Revisiting stone rows -around a place my brothers and sisters called Lost Lake (where in the early 1960's as a kid, I first encountered a zigzag row and started researching as well as questioning what I found)can see multiple rows in the distances.
And right around the floodplain the same perspective is added and I'm seeing new things in places I thought I was so familar with - right where I've started 30 plus years of walks into the woods, half of those looking for stone work.

Well you are right Tim. There are a bunch of "yeah but..."s. After first snow all the rocks are hidden. Deep snow or inadequate crust make it hard for this lazy old guy. All in all, next weekend looks good.

We seem to be escaping the snow and ice that sweeps across northern New England, which makes me think that I need to get out and do some exploring around here -- meaning close to the Delaware Water Gap. There is too much development where I live.
