You either love it, or you hate it - I don't think there is an in between. What am talking about; S*N*O*W*! The first major snow fall of the year.
Yesterday in my area it was 52 degrees outside, people were wearing shorts while walking the dog, and jogging. Spring jackets and sweat shirts were worn instead of bulky winter coats while riding bikes around the neighborhood.
Today we have a winter weather advisory with gusty winds and temperatures around 25 degrees.
I enjoy seeing the children playing in the fluffy white snow, and I'm happy for the ski resorts that can now fill the slopes with skiers and snowboarders. Snowmobilers can zip through the empty fields, and businesses that provide snowplowing service can make some money, along with the teenager who will shovel your walk for $20.00.
So, I welcome winter to Wisconsin, I am preparing myself for the shoveling that will need to be done this morning.
I like using vintage items, but rest assured I will not
be using a face protector like this while shoveling.
This face protector was once sold in Canada around 1939.
