Winter came upon us recently with ample snow and ice for outdoor enjoyment. Our forecasters are telling us that winter will return soon.
First it was Winter Storm Cleon, then Dion, followed by Electra and now Falco that created fantastic early season conditions for skiing, riding, sledding and skating.
And in this season of the Olympic Winter Games in Russia, the timing is right as we are now about seven weeks to the Opening Ceremony in Sochi on Feb. 7.
Not only has the weather resembled the Winter Games, but so has the action in our two-time Winter Olympic village.
We began with the Four Nations Cup women’s hockey tournament last month, which was won by Canada. This will be a formidable squad, and after winning the last three Olympic gold medals, will be favored to make it a fourth.
