After the Storm (again)

We are shoveling again!  On Wednesday we had snow, rain, freezing rain, pellets, thunder and then about 10" of snow to top it off.  The sun is shining now though!

The snow has been coming down almost daily it seems; it really feels like winter.  We have many colleagues from the Midwest with whom we can reminisce about real winters in the Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana (the main difference in CT is bigger hills and the inclusion of sleet/freezing rain between the snowflakes).  We think this is storm #4, perhaps we should call it Duncan.  We have been out for some walks to say hi to the locals, and even took respite from the snow clearing to watch the AFC final game between the New York Jets and the Pittsburgh Steelers, which was a great game!  The Terrible Towel is flying here in North Stonington in preparation for the Super Bowl. Go Stillers!

The milk truck on it's daily route -slow enough for a photo this day

Mark says "I have to comment about the milk truck picture. I believe he was going slowly because most of the tractor was hanging out into the road. I'm pretty sure he didn't see me until the last minute and I sure as heck didn't hear him coming. If he hadn't seen me until it was too late, you might have had more interesting pictures..."
