It comes as a big change in mental preparation to go off to work and play today!
Boots, gloves, hats, thermal layering are now going to be part of leaving for outdoors. No longer will driving be effortless, but a careful concentrated event each and every moment starting with the challenging hills. Fortunately, the snowplow drivers are our new best friends when it comes to paving the way for us. I would doubt if it will be long before it becomes same old-same old routine of winter months, but as for today, it is putting past practice into action.
