I have been attending Prescribed Fire training this week so didn't get back to the preserve until this afternoon and immediately started plowing and shoveling. We had about 4 - 5" of fresh snow today.
Our parking lot is gravel, so plowing doesn't exactly clear it—but now you won't get stuck.
As the temperatures drop over the next couple days the conditions should be outstanding for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing here. And the snow has made the countryside beautiful.
I enjoy the change of seasons; but if pressed I'd say I'm more of a summer person. However, I love a "real" winter that has crunchy snow underfoot and crisp air, and I prefer snow over gray rain.
Come out to Crow's Nest to see the animal tracks and reduce the effects of cabin fever.
