Electric "Blizzard" paints Springfield white, and warm temperatures melt snow fast.
An Electric Storm.
It was a rather strange electrical snow storm and the sound of thunder shook the area worse than most spring rain storms do. The sky was white and thunder rocked the area, vibrating windows. An electrical surge moved through the power lines crashing computers, flipping surge protectors and shutting down some cordless phones which require an electrical outlet to work.
Snow Shoes Not Necessary.
After that last snow storm leaving 4 feet with even higher drifts, I bought a pair of lightweight snowshoes that let me walk on top of the snow drifts. Today, I did not use them. Unless the snow is knee or waist deep, they are more trouble than they are worth. So this snow is classified SSNN. (Snow Shoes Not Necessary.) I just put on a pair of over-the-ankle boots and tromped through the snow. Will I ever need to use my snow shoes again? Possibility, but I hope not.
