Our intrepid reporter searches the town for signs of winter ice
FALLS VILLAGE — It being January, The Lakeville Journal recently set out to search Falls Village for signs of winter.Winter was conspicuously absent at the Hollenbeck Preserve along Page Road on the clear, sunny afternoon, with the temperature in the upper 30s and not much wind. The dominant leitmotif was brown.The valley between Undermountain Road and Route 63 was similarly unwintry, although the color scheme here tends more toward the khaki, interspersed with green.There was a brief moment of excitement along Barnes Road with the spotting of some ice along the side of the road. It was very thin, however, and a couple of hours of sunlight would probably take care of it.We did find something that looked like winter by going up a few hundred feet and finding ice formations in Wangum Brook.Even there, though, the water looked kind of, well ... brown.Editor’s note: Snow appeared on Tuesday, Jan. 17. The Lakeville Journal takes full responsibility.
