And just like that fall ended and it was winter in Lead. This week the temperature has dropped and we have had a dusting of snow almost every day. You have to hand it to the weather though because we did have a glorious (and longer than last year) autumn!
I love this part of early winter when we start looking forward to the holidays and being together with friends and family we might not have had time to see during a busy summer. I’m looking forward to our winter projects here in the office as we begin to slow down on the tourism front. Winter is new and has the sparkle and glitter of yet another fresh start. What will you do with your new season?
