Snow AND Spring Ahead

Nearly two feet of snow and the loss of an hour's sleep in the same weekend!
What have we done to deserve this?!!!!!

For those of you who have been basking in the warmth of the sun or who have been living under a rock the past week, Ohio and the Great Lakes were slammed with a snow storm this weekend.

It started around 11 a.m. Friday. I know this because I was co-chair of a conference - YouToo: Social Media Boot Camp and Leadership Summit - that expected out-of-town presenters for afternoon sessions. I sat with the other co-chair and made phone calls to confirm the sessions at this time - watching the snow flakes turn into drifts and piles faster than the trucks could salt and plow.
That was just the beginning, though. By this morning, mother nature had dropped nearly two feet of the white stuff, shutting down Akron and the surrounding areas. I mean everything was closed, even McDonald's.
Kevin cleared our driveway and four of our neighbor's drives five times by this morning. That's in two days! Thank goodness for the snow blower.

So with no falling snow today, we began to dig out and stock up. And so did everyone else. The stores were packed, the gas stations backed up, restaurants overflowing. We were all tired of being inside, and we are all out of whack with the later daylight!
