When the snow started in what turned out to be the blizzard of 2010, everyone enjoyed the excitement of days off school, days off work and being huddled together in the warmth and security of our homes. But as the blizzard progressed and the shovels kept shoveling, and shoveling, and the snow didn't seem to get any lesser it became a hassle. Power outages, collapsed roofs, never ending shoveling, took the fun out of it. No more snow became the 'motto' for the rest of the winter. But no one can deny that once its all said and done, the beauty of nature shines through and peace & tranquility prevail.
