Wind, waves, cold, and snow hit the Twin Ports as the first major winter storm of the year passed through. Much of the area saw several feet of snow fall (see snowfall totals) to kick off the long winter season.

I had the chance to survey some of the damage and check out some of the natural beauty left behind between the first major round of snow on Monday night and again on Thursday as folks dug out. Here is some of what I observed while I was out and about.
