Well, the WildSnow clan is off to a backcountry cabin for Christmas holiday. Back soon. Meanwhile, I just want to thank all of you for making WildSnow happen over the last 12 months. That’s the best Christmas gift I can imagine. It’s been our biggest year ever, and we’ve tried to step up to the plate and deliver something new almost every weekday, as well as doing a huge amount of back-end work that includes everything from spam defense, to constant design tweaks, to editing our deep content. We’ll keep it going, see you next week!
