Yesterday I stayed home and safe while a spring blizzard rolled in. I was glad I did. Conditions changed dramatically during the day leading to many stranded people. At 6am yesterday morning 2 inches of snow had fallen in Erie, and all was calm. In less than an hour all had changed with fast falling snow, and then the wind - kicking up the snowing, swirling, limiting visibility.
I took some photos out of our front window. We had enough snow that our neighbor across the street's boy could build a snow cave when the storm finally calmed.After the storm, the following day... bright and blue skies. Our small community was out and about doing the much needed shoveling and general digging out. After a large dumping there is nothing nicer than going outside with one's snow shovel and take many breaks chatting to neighbors and hearing their stories. Snow clearing is hard work - and catching up with neighbors is the best part.
