There’s a link a bit later to a post from last winter.    I hope you check it.  For now I’ll say Robert Frost was on the money here.

Yes, it’s Kristin Poling, embracing her future.

Here’s what Robert Frost wrote, as a paraphrase of Dante Alighieri:         “Some say the world will end in fire,    Some say in ice.          From what I’ve tasted of desire       I hold with those who favor fire.           But if it had to perish twice,        I think I know enough of hate             To say that for destruction ice           Is also great                        And would suffice.”

Note the house, removed and on the bank.  Here’s the fotos of the ice NOT sufficing to destroy  Kristin 11 months ago.    Here are some fotos from my visit on her two months ago.

Many many thanks to Bob Silva for these fotos, which he took yesterday.    RIP,  (recycling into productivity) Kristin Poling, December 15, 1934—Dec 15, 2011.
