WAKING TO SNOW: If you went to bed last evening with a the thought of a clear, cold night I am sure you are surprised to see snow this morning. We are very cold (temperature is 15° just after 9 am) and winds are from the NNW causing a 'feels like' in the single digits. Earlier this morning, that feels-like went below zero at 7:15.
