I am inside by a warm fire as I write this outside the winter wind is blowing and the temperatures have begun to plummet (headed in to the teens tonight). The dogs are in their kennel boxes luxuriating in the warmth of the office. Later this week the possibility of our first snowstorm of the season is a real possibility.

Megunticook Lake Hot and Cold

November 18, 2013

 

By Don Kleiner

The last fishing trip of the 2013 season was yesterday. A father and son excursion that we hoped would be a great time. This late in the fall I schedule trips for mid-day to take advantage of the warmer temperatures and we started at 11. The day before I fished the lake to see what our prospects might be and was delighted. I found pods of rainbow trout on the surface in several locations.

As with any museum, the Berkshire Museum holds an extensive permanent collection of artwork – and like any other museum, it’s simply not possible to display it all at once. The Berkshire Museum’s permanent collection boasts 50,000 member pieces, including art, artifact, and interesting natural specimens.
