Here's the Difference

Yesterday the weather forecast here was 8-14" inches of snow, and they were right on target. But here's the difference. The snowploughs were staged on the highways by mid-afternoon. By early evening, trucks were spraying, scattering salt or sand on my street. This morning, the snowplough has been down my street three times already. Too bad they don't do driveways!

Here's the view from my "sun" room . . .

Glad they know how to clean the streets! Snow is always so pretty from inside your house, isn't it?

and do you know that the streets are absolutely clear now? The ploughs and salt sprayers continued throughout the day. I'm so impressed. Everyone was out shoveling the walks, talking, just like people in Oklahoma talk when they do their yard work. It really looks like a winter wonderland.

Wow. That is an incredible photo. That kind of snow is so beautiful and it sounds like you finally bought a snow shovel. Did Tommy leave today? When will you be connected for long emails?

I am totally connected for long emails. Send them on!

I feel obligated to clarify the street ploughs, etc. Apparently the city isn't as quick or efficient as the boroughs here. A total mess! from what I hear. Glad my little borough is so efficient:)
