The Great Storm to End 2015

9:00am Tuesday: Wow! Six inches to one foot of snow all over. Got a solid snow blow in, although it only took 12 minutes to do the main part of the driveway. Here’s a few shots from this morning.

11:30pm Monday: Lots of wind; some drifting and some snow. But thus far, the Great Storm is a disappointment. Here’s our driveway a few minutes ago.

 

4:15pm Monday: I will update this post with additional pictures, video, and comments as the storm moves across Traverse City, Michigan. Here is a screen-snip of the radar at 4:10pm and a picture of South Union Street outside my office at 4:20pm.

Children’s Books Quotes

At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I’ve grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.

~ Chris Van Allsburg, The Polar Express

There are things about you quite unlike any other.
Things always known by your father or mother.
So if you decide to be different one day,
no worries . . . I’d know you anyway.

~ Nancy Tillman, I’d Know You Anywhere, My Love
