Snow

Ended up with 7-8 inches in my neighborhood. I’ve never experienced the kind of winter weather as we have had this winter. January was almost spring-like, and then February had consistently freezing temps. Usually it’s the other way around. The official snow total for my city is 14 inches (all told, not actual accumulation), which is a decades-old record breaker. As pretty as it is, the high winds, sub-freezing temps, and impassable roads otherwise dull my enthusiasm. It’s as close as I want to know what it is like to live in Alaska this time of year or the Rockies during the spring thaw.
