Beating the Heat, Day 4

If the forecast is right, today will be our hottest day yet…but also the last before a break from the 90s. With this is mind, I’ve saved my heat-beating big guns for this moment.

Remember back to February 2011. It was my first winter here at Maples at the Sonatas—a memorable one that delivered our third biggest snowstorm ever. It was known as the Groundhog Day Blizzard, and, to use Groundhog Day lingo, it was a doozy. More than 20 inches of snow driven by high winds buried us. Here are a few of the photos I took. I hope they help you keep cool today.

I took all of these from my windows. I couldn’t get out my front door or garage until our brave snow removal crew made a timely appearance.

And yes, they really do shovel our sidewalks. It took three guys to move the snow from my sidewalks and a bobcat to open the driveway.

This is how things looked from my windows. Every one of them. Poor Angie couldn’t see anything but snow. She got so discouraged, she fell asleep on the bed.

I wouldn’t!
