Winter weather from years past

Post by Don Nelsen » December 7th, 2013, 5:32 pm

The current cold weather has produced some great scenery and likely the best that some of the younger folks have experienced in this area. In years past, though, we've had much more snow and colder weather of longer duration: A few pics from those times:
