It snowed here yesterday. All of school kids were home before 1:00 p.m. It did not snow much but it did snow just enough to require some sidewalk and driveway shoveling to make sure they do not ice. It snowed a little more during the night. I know that the above picture does will make my friends in the west think that the snow here is nothing at all. We still think that but I guess we have to remember that snow removal is not a big item when local and state budgets are prepared. There is little to none in the line of snow removal equipment here. They do salt the roads when there is indication of ice. This happens especially when there is freezing fog.

Anyway, we know that it could snow more here but this is the most we have had here in the two years we have been here. The two photos I have posted were taken about 11:00 a.m. today. It is now 1:15 p.m. The temperature is approaching the high 40's, the wind is blowing and the snow is rapidly melting. The big problem is that it is supposed to be much colder this evening and tomorrow. I sure hope the huge puddles left by the melting snow will have drained away before that or there surely will be an icy mess.
