December 9th Blizzard

Well Mother Nature pounded us pretty thoroughly last night. I do not have an official measurement, but somewhere in the neighborhood of 17 inches of snow fell. The city is snarled, buses are not running, and many businesses are closed. Schools closed too, which meant big fun for the kids at the sledding hill.

The landscape was truly gorgeous if you could ignore all the snapped off trees and downed power and telephone lines, and cars buried to their windows. People were taking it all in stride, shoveling or snow-blowing themselves and their neighbors out. We did not encounter any grumpy folk at all while we were out stomping around.

There are more photos in a SLIDE SHOW at my Flickr site. Enjoy!
