After the storm

Last week saw roads closed and fog, snow and wind that affected visibility and forced school closures, with no unnecessary travel for a number of days. There are always the diehards, though; intrepid adventurers who greet the first signs of a storm's end with gusto and a toboggan. They travel to the school yard hill to feel the bitter breeze on their cheeks as they glide their sleds down the drifts before climbing to do it all again. These youngsters head home as afternoon temperatures begin to drop once again.
