Several posts ago, I wished for snow. I do enjoy the cold, the snow, the winter, but what we are experiencing now is a bit much. This area has seen more snowfall in February alone than it has in an entire winter. It's almost suffocating. I believe we're looking at a total of 63.1 inches since February 2nd. The schools were closed for 3 days. Never in my entire life have I ever seen that happen before. The roads are just trashed. The DPW crews are working double shifts, but the stuff just keeps falling and falling. Two laned roads are reduced to one and quite slippery at that, the snow banks are so high making it virtually impossible to see around corners while driving, the wind is whipping and wind chill temperatures are in the negatives. This is definitely going to be a winter to remember! I found a quote today that holds a snowplow full of meaning right about now:
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant.- Anne Bradstreet
I think it's going to be quite awhile before we see spring, but oh how sweet it will be!!
