This pic was taken before sunrise this morning; all was peaceful, calm and pretty. In all we got about 12″ of snow, you cant tell from the pics because the roads were already plowed and everyone had shoveled last night. Shoveling last night nearly killed me, the snow was wet and heavy; I got out early this morning and shoveled the 6 or 7 inches that fell since last night. I was very lucky that the power stayed on and that we didnt get 3 feet of snow! My mother reminded me this morning that during the Blizzard on 1978 my father had to get a police escort to the hospital where he was a doctor to deliver a baby.
