Last night when I went to bed there was just a light coating of snow over everything. This morning it was bad enough to close the schools. We did have some snow in early November, but that batch didn't last long since it was followed by a couple weeks of fairly warm and wet weather. It looks like we are finally getting our winter.
This is good news for all the people who enjoy this time of year. Snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, skating, and so on will soon be available to those who partake of such activities. For others, this is when they plan to be spending some time in warmer climates. I personally like the season to the point where I don't even mind spending 2 hours shovelling. It is good exercise, and get you out in the crisp, cool air.
