Winter is here ......

Sitting here with 3 or 4 inches that fell overnight at my house. Just happy we got anything since it's been so dry the last couple months. Glad to see West Yellowstone and Island Park getting blasted. And Utah! I hope Utah gets tons this year to make up for last year.
 
Nice view of Sawtelle! How much did you get in the last storm?
 
Full on winter was a bit late here in Alberta, but has definitely arrived over the last 2 weeks. Having been down in the desert last month, feeling enthusiastic about the snow season has been a bit tougher than usual, but we're getting into it.
