Winter 2013 Has Arrived

Winter Has Come Again

Winter of 2008

It was a great summer for weather, both July and August brought lots of sunny days and very little rain.

Fall colours came early and we really didn’t get an Indian summer experience.

But now comes the winter of 2013¬†and it’s late November with 4 cm of snow on the ground.

If we are lucky it will be like the winter of 2008, no shortage of snow.
