Winter arrives with a convincing storm.


After a weirdly, warm start to November a winter storm roared through the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota on Friday. Areas to the north and west of us received up to 2 feet of snow. In my neighborhood it was about 3 inches of snow. Amazing it even stuck considering we had the latest hard freeze since some time in the the late 1800’s.  Our first hard freeze corresponded with this storm. Without the normal freezes the ground isn’t frozen at all. This storm had high winds and lots of blowing snow and plunging temps. It was a very abrupt change. For those of us that love winter, all I can say is, “It’s about time.”

I’m not going to lie that I enjoyed the warm Fall. But I’m ready for winter. I had to go out for a ride and soak it in all. Snow and cold air. Love it!

    Even we had a little puff of cool air over the weekend. I woke up in my hammock in Tyler, Texas on Saturday morning and it was about 42 degrees. To borrow from your post title…Fall arrived with a little puff of cool air…and it was delightful.

      Cool mornings while camping are delightful. Hot coffee with a hot breakfast are especially good on a cool morning.
