Third big snow storm of the year so far! This one dumped a couple feet of snow on Wednesday the 20th and didn't stop until Thursday afternoon. Drifts were up near four feet in spots. Jean and I played hooky from work and snowshoed/skiied up The Rock with Dwight in the afternoon. After some beers in the evening, Dwight and I decided to do a night time ascent too. Fun stuff! It took a couple hours from lots of trail breaking and wallowing around. Our cul de sac didn't get plowed until sometime Friday so there was no way any of us were getting out. A snowshoe trip downtown was fun and shoveling was quite the workout! Still plenty of snow left a week later with talk of another storm on the way. YIPPEE!!!!
