White Christmas 2013

Christmas break 2013 will go into the books as one to remember… We experienced over 10 inches of snow in my neighborhood and were without electricity for 3 days. The picture above was my first attempt to travel through my neighborhood after the snowfall. As you can, see trees covered most of the roadway and road conditions were treacherous.
