After the skimpy snow-fall we had just the other day it wasn't much of a surprise to wake up to about seven inches on the ground this morning. The temp was 15° and has been holding under freezing all day, so it may stay around for a bit. Down by the river they got 12" or more.
One nice side-effect of the snow is that the reflection of the sun fills the house with light, and that is very pleasant.
All indications are that we are in for a real winter this year.
