Snow Day

I spent my second Tuesday in a row this week trudging through the snow. Last week, it was mostly residents digging themselves out of the snow, shoveling or snow blowing their driveways and cleaning off their cars.

This week, it seemed Kane County was ready for the snow, and ready to have fun in what could possibly be our last significant snow fall 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 was still falling. I also probably saw about a dozen snowmen and heard about at least two snow forts. Everyone seemed ready to enjoy their winter while it lasts.
