Snowed in? Reality, or romantic thought. There is more than one answer to that question. The reality is that we are literally snowed in. Oh, the main streets are clear — and the sidewalks on the main street are clear — with a few icy patches (walk with your head down) — but in actuality we are snowed in.
Because the unrelenting cold doesn’t allow the snow and ice to melt it’s difficult to take our usual walks, parking, even in plowed lots is not always easy — there are icy patches right outside your car door, and the enormous piles of snow are psychologically inhibiting. There’s more snow on the way.
