4 inches of snow should not be such a problem. It's the ice. A layer of ice under the snow is very dangerous. This morning I was watching the news, and they were showing, live, a city bus, sliding sideways down a hill. I don't want to see that in person!
Now, Chris lives in a town in Idaho, where they measure the snow in feet, not inches. He has a Saint Bernard, who digs huge holes in the snow and lays in them, snow shoes hang by his back door and one of the highlights of winter is the Beard Growing Contest. (you can't make that up) He still loves the snow.
It's not so much fun at Country Village. The slight incline to get back on the Highway, is a sheet of ice. So, if you were planning on shopping with us today, stay home. Work on a UFO, and check back tomorrow, because we are staying home today. The shop is closed, along with the Northshore School District. Stay warm. J
