I spent my second Tuesday in a row trudging through the snow. Last week, it mostly was residents digging themselves out of the snow, cleaning off their cars and shoveling or snow-blowing their driveways.
This week, it seemed Kane County was ready for the snow and ready to have fun in what could possibly be our last significant snowfall of the season.
Children and their parents dotted the local sled hills, including Ashlee Tompkins, 9, of Elburn at Johnson’s Mound (pictured), even as the snow still was falling. I also probably saw about a dozen snowmen and heard about at least two snow forts. Everyone seemed ready to enjoy winter while it lasts.
