Larry Weber has a wrap-up of December, some good news about tomorrow (the sun starts rising earlier!) and a group of Northland residents who weren't just tolerating last weekend's rain ... they were lichen it.
Larry Weber makes many interesting year-end observations when looking back over 2019. Here are a few: January was colder than normal, including twice when temps dropped below -40. We set a February record for snowfall. March and April didn't see a lot of snow, but May did and set another record.
The abrupt changes of November, the beginning of our darkest month, and - oh, yeah! - it snowed!

"A snow-covered branch becomes a single section of snow. After a while, gravity may cause this snow to sag off the branch, and observers call the pattern a 'snow rope' or 'snow snake." ~ Larry Weber
