Sweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slight...

The actual snowfall started around 2 PM Friday (22 Jan) and ended around 10 PM Saturday (23 Jan). Sandra and I spent about 15 hours total... Read More
