Here is an illustration I did a while back. I thought it would be fitting given the early snows that have helped out the local ski hills of late. Too bad the last snowstorm that hammered the D.C. area totally missed its target. From what I've heard, heavy winter weather in December was predicted by the Farmer's Almanac as well as most meteorologists (go figure). Well, Yeee Haww. I'm beyond ready to get my ski rack set up and head for the hills (queue Iron Maiden).
