This is the street my daughter Sara lives on, on the right at the bend at the top of the street. It hasn't been plowed, and maybe will be once before spring thaw in March. It's up to traffic to beat the snow down. That works fine if you like ruts, bumps and streets that are a third as wide as they are in the summer. You must admit it's beautiful though. The frustrating thing is that if residents don't have their sidewalks shoveled down to bare cement within 48 hours of a snowfall the city fines them. Too bad residents can't fine the city for neglect of snowy streets. It's been tried and failed.
This is the first year for this trampoline. Do you think maybe we should have put it away for the winter? The kids love it. Lets hope there's still some spring in it come spring. Just look at that saggy bottom.
Is it any wonder that skating, cross country skiing, sledding, curling, and hockey are a big part of life here. The motto seems to be 'don't fight winter, embrace it.' It'll be over in a few months and then we'll be complaining of the heat.
