Bud's View: Snow, and plenty of snow geese

It's only been about a month since winter officially arrived, but it's been a strange one thus far in the Lehigh Valley.

It appeared we would be inundated with snow by now when 5.17 inches of wet snow fell Thanksgiving eve and the Farmer's Almanac was predicting a winter to rival the one we experienced last year.

The snowfall total was only 6.5 inches when I sat down to craft this January column. This total pales in comparison to the 20.9 inches of snow by this time last year.
