It was with a touch of sadness and a feeling of deep satisfaction that we said goodbye to Old Man Winter today. From his earliest appearances in mid October, through his grand finale in the higher-elevations over this past weekend, the Old Man put on an exceptionally good show across the Northeast this winter.
