More &*%$*#@ snow

Don-the story of his life! Yesterday morning I left Parkersburg, WV to drive back to Cincinnati knowing that "snow showers" were in the forecast. I arrived in the city around noon and it was snowing a bit--nothing serious. Shortly afternoon it began to snow harder, but it was not sticking to the cars or the pavement. This is good! A little later it began sticking to everything. By the time I went home at 4:45 the city was paralyzed by another winter storm. A good four inches had fallen and then we got a couple more overnight.

Don-late for work

This morning Fr. Al and I dug out. The snow was light and fluffy. Don-unable to make it up the drive No problem. I drove to work and conditions were much, much better than last night. Then I came to the hill at Mt. Airy which I had to climb in order to get to work. I got stuck. with the help of a couple of friars and the postulants I was able to back down the hill and leave the car at the driveway entrance. I then trudged up the hill on foot and Kevin Janke, one of our Postulants, took these pictures.

As the morning wore on and the crew treated the driveway, Fr. Carl was able to get the car up the hill, but it took three tries. By 4:30 when I went home the pavements were clear. In spite of sub-freezing temperatures, the sun had melted most pavements in the city--including the Mt. Airy driveway.

Enough of winter. Enough of ice and snow. PLEASE.
