Snow day Today.

We have a few inches on the ground and it is snowing this morning. Ewen Trout Creek School already called off school today. When I was a kid we walked through 3 feet of snow uphill, Both ways. Oh wait maybe that was my dad. Forecast now is 5-8 inches, I went and bought a snow blower yesterday so that is why totals have dropped from 8-12 inches I think. Check out the web cams through out the day to see the real story.
