"Winter is here"

So declared one of the Environment Canada weather bulletins last Thursday morning.  And several days before that, a hilarious "Winter is coming" preceded their more detailed forecast.  Sure enough, we had several centimeters/an inch or two of snow!
Snow, with dog for scale.  I first saw that phrase in an older paper about... sparrows?  grasslands?  I wish I could remember what paper it was, but it appears to be a not-uncommon unit of measurement, as a google search found several other people using this helpful scale.  19 November 2015, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
