Winter is here in Ohio

We had our first snow flurries today. Winter is not far behind.....

I hope you are getting excited for the holidays. My family wishes a wonderful Thanksgiving to you and your family. I know it has been a hard year for many. I hope you can still find something to be thankful for.
