Days Gone By.... By: Rebecca Hudson

February 13, 2013

The snow was stacked so high that year that it blocked the view from the houses of cars driving by on city streets. 
You have to admit that all in all, it's been a pretty wimpy winter.  Bone chilling cold, rain, ice and a definite lack of snow have made for a pretty irritating, unappealing winter.  I have to say I yearn for a good old fashioned stop-the-world snow storm and have yet to experience it this winter. 

Until this past weekend, that is.  Up until then however, it's been a different story. Used to be you could count on a midwinter thaw, relieving the winter-weary folks with a slight, much appreciated reprieve. Now it seems winter is one great big thaw.

Back in the day.....well I can't help but reminisce about the excitement in the air when the barometer plummeted and forecasts of a big storm sent chills down our spines.  A snow day holiday from school perhaps?
