Winter did not arrive here in earnest until mid December.  Then we had two major snowstorms in one week.  It took us a day

to dig out from each.

Ice from the first Polar Vortex fills the head of Linekin Bay

The descent of the Polar Vortex, though not as deep or lengthy as in other places did result in a good coating of ice on Linekin Bay.  This was followed by a heavy, wet snow with no wind as it fell.  The result was magical.

At the end of the storm we had a brief period of rain.

Winter sunsets here are always spectacular.
