....Is a good time to be in Empire! For us locals, it's a time to get out the snow shoes or the nordic walking poles and get about one of the most engaging places on our planet.
OK, so some of the locals do flock to the warmer climes, and toast their bones.
THIS JUST IN!! Breaking new flash! As of 12-9-08, we have already received 1/2 of our average winter snowfall.
With the exception of last winter, we usually hope that we at least get a white Christmas. We have returned to Winters of 'yore, where white Thanksgivings were the norm. Global warming is now referred to as "climate change".
