It's pretty amazing looking at all the snow the Champaign/Urbana IL area has gotten this year. Even though we are not at record totals for year to date, the combination of snow accumulation mixed with the extensive number of days with frigid wind chills makes this a record year already.

All we can do is get out and enjoy what mother nature has blessed us with, and hope that the chirping sounds of spring will be here soon.  In the meantime, get out and enjoy some of the greatest sledding hills around!  Here are the Top 5 for the Champaign/Urbana IL area:

Homer Lake Forest Preserve

* Crystal Lake Park                                                                      

* Morrissey Park

* Orchard Downs

* Centennial Park

I'm personally yearning for the sailing season to begin.....but in the meantime......I'll be heading for the hills and outdoor fun with my friends!
