The funniest part of this storm was all the overreaction by the local media about how crazy this storm was going to be. I spoke to my grandmother the next morning (she got about 30 inches) and she was hysterical laughing, talking about how these storms came a few times each winter when she was a kid.. no big deal. I seem to recall the same when I was a kid too, we’d get 6 or 8 inches and it wasn’t a problem in the least. Either way, the park looked beautiful as always.. and so did the pooch…

The meadow was packed with sledders. The most I’ve ever seen on Picnic Hill in 26 years

The steady stream of sledders reminded me of old army movies with bombers dropping lines of parachutes from their steel bellies
