I had some fun playing in the snow as the Blizzard was warming up for the main event. I got some pretty good plowing done on the light and fluffy first flakes, then it got too deep to plow. some of the scenes of the engines struggling are actually from a different storm. We got between 20 and 30 inches total...it was drifting and hard to get a true measure. that is a lot of scale inches of snow...right up to the base of the church steeple!
