The Season's First Snowstorm

Here in the Northeast, today’s temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 40s following the first real snowstorm of the season.

This week, we got what meteorologists call a classic front end "thump" of snow, when the area is hit with three to five hours of solid snowfall and then a sudden flip to sleet and rain. This storm system brought several inches of wet, heavy snow, which downed trees and caused havoc for thousands of travelers and commuters. At my farm, we're still in the process of preparing for the winter season ahead. Yet, even if you’re not a fan of cold weather, it's hard not to love a gorgeous snow-covered landscape. I always love touring the farm and taking photos the morning after a snowfall - enjoy.

And, if you're in the Chicago area today, I hope to see you at Soldier Field for the USA Wine & Food Experience. You still have time to buy tickets - just click anywhere on this highlighted link.
