It was an unbelievable snowstorm. Snow was falling so quickly that it was sticking to my car windows again--and I had just cleaned them! I found myself shoveling my front steps over and over until I finally decided to stop for a while. My neighbor waved at me from across the street. I knew that it didn't make sense to continue removing snow until the storm was over, but I had certainly tried my best. I hope the snowfall ends soon because another ten inches are forecast for tomorrow morning!
