(Toledo, OH) Since the arrival of the Blizzard of 2007, the humans and the canines in my house have gotten a bit stir crazy. We thus ventured out into the post-blizzard sunshine to survey the aftermath of the biggest winter storm in years.
The snowplows have not yet reached the streets near my house, and driving is treacherous on the many of the local sidestreets. I agree with city and county officials to stay at a Level 3 Snow Emergency - stay off the roads for the next few hours until the crews can clear the roads.
There are many cars like this in my neighborhood, buried under the accumulated and drifting snow. My oldest son, naturally, risked getting a ticket for driving to the business of his friend's parents to help them shovel snow.
God forbid he should shovel a little snow for his own suffering parents, but Oy vey! That's another story (Yiddish expression added to tweak the idiot neo-Nazis who sometimes lurk here and think I'm Jewish).
Toledo missed the full fury of the Blizzard of 2007, but this was still quite a storm. I'm glad we don't live closer to Lima, OH, which received about twice the amount of snow as Toledo.
