It's a great start to 2016 for residents in The Land of the Sure Crop weather wise.

Times like these tend to make life easier for people like Matthew Richardson, a local Gas Bar attendant in Humboldt, to enjoy other hobbies that don't require a lot of snow and extreme cold.

"It's been a good winter. I don't sled so the snow isn't an issue. I do lots of hunting so it's good on the wild life"

The region is projected to be blanketed with sunshine, and gorgeous conditions dawning the first full work week in 2016.
