I started out in the suburbs of Philadelphia, but most of my childhood I was in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. Every community had it's own school, and we had sidewalks, so we could walk. That early in the morning, most sidewalks were not shoveled, but we just plowed our way through. As a kid, it was fun.

We had snow days up here in Erie. Moreso as my education progressed, or maybe I just knew the reason there was no school that day.

We barely got a dusting last night on top of the snow we already had. Not enough to even shovel. Yay.

We are supposed to get 1-3 today through tomorrow. Nothing here yet. It's 31 right now. Our neighbor across the street shovels every half hour. I think he has nothing to do.

Yep, almost halfway through Feb.
We got another dusting last night. This dusting on top of last dusting means it's snow removal time again.

Reluctant to look outside, I know I'm going to have to clear the car off and get it out of the parking lot BEFORE the plow goes through. Yup another inch of snow for a grand total of 7 inches over the last three days! I just hope the snow pack is getting built up in the mountains.

It's snowing here, too. And in the low teens.
Makes for a bitter day and I have to drive into the "snow belt" today.

-8C (18F). I just stepped outside for a couple of minutes wearing a long sleeved t-shirt, leggings, and thin, cotton knit "leisure pants. It was fine. Of course, that was just outside my back door where there is next to no breeze.
