We can tell that winter has finally arrived because:
- It's extremely cold out
- Pools and puddles of water have taken on a hard, shiny appearance
- Winterwatch has been on tele, though sadly I've mostly missed it
- Snow has happened, with more promised for tomorrow
- This blog has been hibernating, but fear not, the occasional flurry of activity will occur
- The hits for the Fox prints in the snow post have gone through the roof, as they do every winter.
