Winter doesn't technically begin until tomorrow, but that doesn't seem to matter today.

Local cancellations so far include:

• Farmington School District 192: After school and evening activities have been canceled for Dec. 20. This includes all athletic, community education and school activities.

Kid Connection and Stepping Stones will remain open until all children have been picked up.

• Farmington American Legion and Auxiliary: The meetings for the Farmington American Legion Post 189 and Auxiliary Unit 189 scheduled for tonight, Dec. 20, have been cancelled.
