Today was the annual winter hike of Mt. Monadnock that I do…well, annually, with a group of guys based largely out of Shrewsbury.  I was all excited to come home and blog about it but I am officially out of steam.  It was a beautiful day, and we all had a great time. It is funny – I put as my Facebook status that I was doing this, and I got several comments about how cold it was – 0 degrees up there.  The thing about these hikes is that you actually get very hot from the exertion, and the challenge is more to stay dry.  Today there was no wind (just a little at the top – not bad for the summit, which is most always windy any time of year) so that made it pretty easy to stay warm.  So more tomorrow, as well as some pictures from the latest stage of the building project – the abatement in the auditorium, the foundation for the “bumpout” and food pantry area, and the finishing of the floor in the foyer.
