My daughter and I went out in search of a place to sled over the weekend. We found several really good places and ran into a lot of others doing the same thing.
Stephanie Day and her family and friends found the same hill we did and the kids had a blast sledding. Seven-year-old Ali Day and Brandon Backus were out playing in all the snow that fell.
I would say we got around 18 inches of snow over the weekend. So much, that many of my guests could not get out on Sunday and had to stay over.
Christopher Creek was a sheet of ice underneath all the snow and the wind was so bad you couldn't even walk in it. We spent most of the day helping people get around.
If you didn't have a four-wheel drive, you were not going anywhere.
Actually, it wasn't safe to even go out in it.
There were numerous accidents on Highway 260 and the Southbound to the Valley was closed for a short time.
It seems when we get moisture, we get it all at once.
It wasn't the snow, so much as it was the ice that made this storm difficult. After you removed all the snow, everything was a sheet of ice. I think we will be slipping and sliding for a few more days.
Everyone is talking about the Super Bowl.
Creekside Steakhouse will have the game on and they will be serving appetizers if you want to come out and catch the big game.
The Steelers are not playing, so I am not too excited.
