It’s finally here! Peru’s first snow struck us with a surprise on November 12th, 2022. Some might say that it’s too early, but I think our first snowfall came just in time to prepare for the upcoming festive season.
Last Thursday, November 10th, was unusually warm for late fall weather. With a high of 72 degrees, snow just two days later seemed unlikely. But as most of us Hoosiers can agree, apparently anything is possible in Indiana.
Snow began early-morning Saturday and continued off and on throughout the day. Peru received around two inches overall and most of it had melted by late afternoon. While the majority of the snow was gone, sunset brought its own waves of flurries to perfectly set the tone for that chilly night. Many of the PHS Winter Formal attendees can say that the unexpected weather was an excellent touch to the theme of the dance.
In the days that followed, the weather has slowly been approaching the conventional Indiana winter temperatures. Just like winters from past years, the air is starting to get crisp and coats and gloves are a more common clothing item.
Our first snow in Peru was simply a warning for the expected winter season arriving, so get a blanket and some hot-cocoa and try to enjoy the snow-free sidewalks as long as you can, because in Miami County, plenty of freezing precipitation is inevitable.
