Happy First Snow Day of the Season.

Well, we did get to wake up to a nice little winter wonderland this morning anyway. It's quickly turned to a slushy mess out there, as you can see from the Chrome Bear-eye's view out the window below. Hope you got out early this morning to make that snowman and shovel the driveway. Not so much fun right now in the cold drizzle. Looks to be a quiet day in scooptown today. A good day to crank out some holiday chocolate santa pops.
And make that giftbasket for the silent auction over at the Old Town Hall tomorrow night (Thursday, Dec. 10th). It's the Easthampton City Arts Annual Celebration & Open House from 6-8pm. Head on over and make a bid on this little cornucopia of Mt. Tom's sweets or one of the many other cool items donated by local artists and business folk.

Of course, you can always order one of these yourself and have it filled with whatever you desire.

The mountain did its storm disappearing act this morning, but it is interesting to see a little winding stream instead of the big old Nashawannuck Pond right now...

Guess it's the Sunday afternoon open skate at the Williston Rink this winter. Poor ice fishermen are going to have to take it on the road this winter.

The inflatable biker Santa was feeling the effects of the heavy snow, or perhaps a few too many at Whisker's last night...

You may not be motivated to leave the warm couch on a day like this, but I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't mention the cool new holiday flavors I whipped up yesterday. Just in time for your upcoming holiday party. Or just a little something to reward yourself for a shopping trip well done.

How about a scoop of Reindeer Tracks?

Vanilla with Chocolate Chips & Peppermint Pieces. (Hat tip to the anonymous suggestor for that one.)

If that's not your thing, how about Festivus, a holiday favorite, of Seinfeld fame. Brown Sugar and cinnamon with gingerbread pieces and a caramel swirl.

But wait, there's more. We have Eggnog ice cream for sure, but how about giving the brand new, Chocolate Eggnog a try. Intriguing, no?

Vienna Fingers and Mint Oreo make an end of year encore to help brighten your December too.

Drive safe, and hope to see you soon.
