Here I am on 11/28/13 (Thanksgiving!), almost an entire month before the official start of winter but you wouldn’t know it based on the weather! The winter of 2013-2014 was very very cold with an incredible amount of snowfall, occurring almost once a week in Shady Side starting in December. My grandparents, who own the property and have for many years saw the bay freeze over for the first time in a long time. This picture from November is a good preview for what is to come.
