Snow!

There was a buzz in the air on Thursday, with news that the season’s first accumulating snow was expected overnight. Winter comes early in the northwoods, and transforms the landscape with a beauty that is unique to the season. With the tress having shed the leaves of autumn, students have been anticipating the transition to winter, often asking, “when will it snow?” As if in answer to that question, Lake Superior turned the strong northwest winds of a departing cold front into a beautiful snowfall. The snow began falling Thursday evening, and students awoke to five inches of lake effect powder. Students enjoyed some classes in the snow today, and were sure to play in the snow at every opportunity. In so doing, they remind us of the power of play, and the importance of embracing the simple gifts that nature offers every day.
