Is it melting yet? Whenever snow blizzards appear, the news broadcasts are ever faithful about reporting them. But, out here in the Pacific Northwest, unless the snow appears in our own midst, the TV news reports never remember to tell us when the stuff melts. We have to keep agonizing about the plight of the victims, bundled up in their mugwumps, guiding their sled dogs across the tundra, hoping to make it to church in time for Easter services.
I’ve been collecting photos of the January snow blitz around the country from Linda Lewis, my niece Christy, and from the internet. This slideshow includes pics from Leeds, North Dakota, Chicago, Illinois, Keller, Texas, Cedar Rapids and Ankeny, Iowa.
