When it snows
ain't it thrilling
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play
the Eskimo way
walking in a winter wonderland

Yes, we're heeding that advice by staying safe and warm indoors today. Thankfully, our vehicles are parked safely in the underground parking here. And, to celebrate this first 2018 snowfall, we've invited neighbors to a Post-holiday and blizzard wine-down this evening. (Everyone lives in the mill apartment building so travel isn't a problem.)

❄️ Winter Wonderland was written in 1934 by Felix Bernard (music) and Richard B. Smith (lyricist). It's been said that Smith, a native of Honesdale, PA, wrote the song after seeing his hometown's main park covered in snow. The tune is popularly regarded as a Christmas song, but the holiday is never mentioned in the lyrics. Through the years, it has been recorded by multiple artists. (A previous post contained more info on this and other holiday songs.)
