On Thursday it was noted that the weather was really, really nice. Highs were in the 50s, and the sun was shining brightly. While I wish I was outside instead of working, I do have to face the inevitable - winter is coming. We already got a wallop last week with five or so more inches than the predicted snowfall amount. While it was miserable outside for that stretch, it thankfully didn't stick around (with the exception of those snowpiles on the sides of plowed-out parking lots).
