Our blizzard on Saturday set some records, at least up in Harrisburg, where it registered as the most snow in a storm on record. Here in Shippensburg it finally topped off officially a 32" (81 cm), although there are some drifts here and there that are as tall as me, and I'm 5' 10" (1.8 m). Certainly there are places where the snow is thigh deep and even waist deep on me; the wind blew that light snow around quite a bit. Today I went up to the grocery store and took pictures on the way. I didn't go through the nature park this time; I stressed my lower back at work Friday, loading some portable generators for customers and stacking 50 lb. (22.7 kg) bags of rock salt, and then on Saturday I took that walk down King St. at the height of the storm. So now my back is hurting. Plain walking is finally okay today, but I didn't want to push it wading through deep snow in the park. Maybe tomorrow? Meanwhile, here's what the town looks like in the snow. Enjoy!
