This proved to be one heck of a storm. Pretty impressive but at the same time left us with a breathtakingly beautiful, snow draped landscape for Thanksgiving. Yes, I would have enjoyed it much more if we had power BUT it wasn’t too bad in the end.
A lot of snow. I reckon 14″. I didn’t bother to take a tape measure out. Well these before-and-after shots should give you an idea.
These pictures were taken around 9 am Thanksgiving Day in Alton. What you have to keep in mind is that 19 hours earlier there was not a JOT of snow on the ground. Green grass and brown dirt. Then this. The snow wasn’t as heavy as people made out. It wasn’t fluffy but easy enough to throw around. I did, for the heck of it, about 2 hours of shoveling. The large quantities of turkey and ham I ate later went down without any trouble given that I had made sure to work up a real appetite for it.

But all that snow or the lack of power did not get in the way of Thanksgiving. We had relatives arrive from Maryland. They drove up, leisurely, in about 10 hours without any trouble.
