6 years and counting. This past year has seen more growth in the county yet. Over one-thousand people now reside within the town of Sandalwood, and nearing 500 in outlying areas of the county as a whole. The sixth year comes to a close though, the warm early-fall weather lasted longer than expected this year. Sandalwood being a normally colder place in the winter, this winter has been strangely mild. The first snow of the year has began to fall, very late though.
December 24th is officially the latest recorded first snowfall in the country.
Sandalwood Central Park was recently completed. It has changed the image of the town completely. The huge urban strip now the centerpiece of the town.
The Domino Sugar Plant isn't one to skimp on the holidays, despite being in the far north of town. Set up in early May it is now Sandalwood's largest industrial producer, and provides the most income for the entire town. Many residents are still weary about the pollutant, but with all the income it has brought to Sandalwood so far, it looks as if more industry may be attracted.
Sandalwood has had many Christmas's before. This Christmas however the city council has set up the first town Christmas tree, right out front of city hall in the new Central Park.
Flurries continued throughout the night. Partially covering the entire town by morning before the storm picked up. It may only be the first snowfall, but it couldn't have happened on a better day.
