Alaska has a very high rate of suicide during the dark months. All six of them. New Hampshire, well, as they say, 'hard to say not knowing.'
From Canterbury to Franconia Notch, Tilton to Portsmouth, Berlin to Hollis: On a clear moderately warm winter's day, in New Hampshire, that is, all thoughts of the End of the World go out the open driver's side window.
Heavy discussions that grace the Park N Go, Central St., Franklin, N.H., are toned down. People wave at strangers. Driver's slow down and let someone in. The horses of Canterbury get to go out for a walk downtown. Hoof prints abound the sandy roadway. Life is good and winter is do-able on a mid winter's day.
Today is a day for New Hampshire in pictures.
