Winter Solstice

Forecasts were for a Winter storm to impact the area as the official day of Winter approached. Predictions of where the rain/snow line would be positioned were in question and I was crossing my fingers that we'd be on the snow side the entire time. Not to be. It rained the entire day and night on Saturday, Dec 22. OSNW3 measured 1.02" of rainfall as the precipitation changed from rain to snow around 6am on Sunday, Dec 23. The temperatures dropped rapidly from the mid 30's to the mid teens as the cold air rushed in. The winds picked up and the snow finally showed it's face!
