Another winter storm, one we are warned will have near-blizzard conditions tonight and the possiblity of 24 inches of snow, is just now making its appearance. These pictures are from last weekend when the sun shone brightly the day after a smaller storm. What an unusual winter we are having! Today is the 8th snowstorm that has dropped measurable snow. So often our winters hold nothing but a flurry or two and some icy rain.
