OK, so it was in April, but it was still Spring and the snow came down really hard.... for about an hour. There was actually a dusting on the ground that you could almost measure! This was our BIG snow for the year! Sure, it had spit some and flaked a little back in January, but only for 30 minutes or less and it didn't even manage to coat the grass blades, never mind the roadway. I'm still waiting for one of those rare twelve inch snows that close the schools and flush out the old sleds in storage. All the kids make tracks over to Mt. Trashmore, the only elevation of any significance in the area and wear the snow out!

As for this blizzard... by the time I picked my brother up from the airport and started back it was over and the sun started to peek out... in less than ten minutes you would have never known the blizzard happened. The remnants indicated a light drizzle of rain at most and by noon, that too was gone; thus verifying the old adage...If you don't like the weather, just wait ten minutes... and it will change!"
