WINTER IS HERE. Finally. If you like snow blown on northers straight from the Arctic, and temperatures dangling down near zero in the morning, then you have gotten what you wanted — for a few days anyhow.
The heavier white stuff may not have gotten here in time for a lot of businesses who badly wanted and needed it through Christmas week, but as is the case with most things in life, better late than never.
Weather is, despite the current temperature, a hot topic around here where snow is considered white gold and, when we don’t get enough of it early enough, the talk always turns to global warming, El Niño, El Niña and anything else that has to do with the perceived disruption of longtime winter patterns in the North Woods.
