The first snow of the season fell just in time for Thanksgiving this year. Holland, Michigan, as you can see in the picture below, got about 10 inches, while Grand Rapids seemed to get a little less.
For those of you living in Florida or California, please don’t envy us here. You may miss the snow and the “traditional” winter holidays with snow and sleds and hot cocoa, but what this snow really means here is the beginning of five dreary, monochromatic months. It also meant having to wait an extra hour in the freezing cold waiting for my bus to arrive after work on Wednesday. Not fun.
