Which, it would appear, he will be needing.
We are in the middle of a blizzard, with monstrously big snowflakes. It is beautiful.
We've got skiers here this week, and some snowmobilers. For them, fresh snow is good news indeed.
Our philosophy on winter is that if we are going to have this season -- and we are -- then it should be a season you can actually have fun with. And the base ingredient, the one thing you really need to play outdoors when it's cold, that would be snow.
So bring it on, we say. The Dwight Winter Carnival is this coming weekend. The Snowmobilers who have waited all year to get out on their sleds are coming north. Skiers are dancing on the slopes. It's all good. Just remember to dress for the conditions, and never forget that weather always looks worse through a window -- once you are out and doing, it's way more fun than you might think. Get out and give it a try!
