It is Monday, Dec. 9. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:
1. Snow: The commute on Monday morning is expected to be disrupted by a small accumulation of snow. The snow will eventually give way to sleet and snow by late morning or early afternoon, with a high temperature getting into the low 40s.
2. Passport: If you visited Hamilton-Wenham village businesses last Thursday for its Christmas in the Villages event, Monday is your final chance to had it a stamped "passport" for a chance to win gift basket. The passport can be turned in at one of the 22 participating businesses, including Capefish Clothing, Henderson's Cafe, Marybeth's Day Spa and The Singing Flower, among others.
