The above, taken at 10:00 AM, day four of the Snow Monster; and lo, is that a pale hint of blue sky, and some actual sunlight? The Snow Monster has a few hours to run; wind is still out of the NW from the lake. In the summer, those same winds out of the NW, bring absolutely delightful weather, so in theory, it balances. Day four, another 4-5 inches, though it has snowed every day in December.
It is December 7th. by the way, Pearl Harbor day, 69 years ago.
