The winter solstice is upon us, which means today is the shortest day of the year. From here, the days lengthen, the light changes and the earth begins the slow creep toward spring, though today is the fist day of winter.
What a different year it has been for early winter weather. In both 2011 and 2012, we had open water on the lake this time of year. The snowfall has been unbelievable and the temperatures have plummeted. We will have a warm up for Christmas it seems, but the snow will remain, with much more in the forecast.
