Katie Knott out in Boston!

Katie Knott is out here in Boston (actually Fort Devins) for 7 weeks. She stopped by for dinner on Tuesday, February 9th. She drove ahead of the upcoming snow storm which ended up only dumping about 2 inches. (Over a foot was predicted.) We hope to see her when she has free time and show her some of New England, although this is not the best time of the year.
