Story for the Day … Snow!

With everything shut down today due to the snow, the only thing one can do is shovel the walkways, perhaps go out and play with the kids, and stay safe and warm inside. If you have any seniors or neighbors in need of assistance today, please consider lending a hand or checking in on them.

Below is a photo I found in the Library of Congress collection showing snow clean up in Washington, probably from the 1920s. While the vehicles have changed and we now have plows on the roads, most of us still rely on shovels, muscles, and determination to clear our sidewalks.
