It’s hard to believe that a week ago yesterday, I took this photo of Brandywine Creek, on the trail next to the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Penn. When I saw this tree overhanging the sun-dappled stream, it struck me as the kind of place where Tom Sawyer might have hung out with pal Huck Finn. It’s a far more benign image of Mother Nature than we’ve gotten used to up here in most of the Northeast these last 24 hours.
