WINTER FINALLY ARRIVES - Winter finally did arrive in 2006, but the dire predictions of a major winter storm didn't hold up in western Sussex County, although wind-driven snow late Saturday night into Sunday did force cancellations and postponements of most Sunday events in the area. From two to four inches of snow fell in the area, which is nothing compared to what the storm dumped in New York and New England. Above, the snow-laden trees and poles on Middleford Road in Seaford create a winter wonderland, if only for a brief time.
