We've had a bit of snow here, and the boys have missed two days of school -
canceled because of road conditions.
I know some of you live where there is a LOT more snow,
and life goes on.
Roads get plowed and sanded,
people have snow- or studded tires,
and know how to drive in the snow.
That's not here!
Our city of 80,000+ has FOUR trucks that can plow.
I've actually seen little flat-bed city trucks
driving around our neighborhood,
with a pile of sand and two men with shovels
standing on the back.
But the snow isn't even the issue this time.
It's the ice.
We've had a Silver Thaw.
My friend, Emily Gibson, of Barnstorming,
gave me permission to share her beautiful photos.
I think he looks like Gimli,
from Lord of the Rings,
with all the snow on his face!
