Since my last post, the area has had over 30″ of snow. I know. I’ve shoveled it all. One of the teachers at the local school said we were having this because the artic is now and island and all that water provides more moisture for snow. Here we also get lake effect snow. Whatever is happening (will the government tell us if there is some catastrophe about to happen?) — it has made a lot of shoveling for me.
