Whoa, there’s that much snow?
Having spent a year in Chicago and early winter in North Dakota, I had come to believe my friends in the great north had been telling me some big fish tales about snow. After all, in my brief time in the northland, other than the thundersnow blizzard in 2011, I had only seen a 3-inch accumulation up here. Well, after Friday’s downpour and the accompanying snowfall Tuesday, I can say with certainty ... I have now seen some real snow.
In fact, I can tell my dear readers that Tuesday’s snowfall produced the most snow that I have seen on the ground in my life. I’ll pause a moment and let you say that I ain’t seen nothing. That may be true. But in the era of changing weather, this is some serious flake action for the new guy in town.
I think what shocks me the most is how resilient people are in this stuff in Bureau County. I mean, you guys still go to work, and the schools didn’t even close until 1 p.m. in the afternoon Tuesday.
