312. Quietly Congratulate our Neighbors to the North

308. Be Amazed by Mother Nature

The Blizzard of 2011
Well, we all survived the Blizzard of 2011, waking up to over 20 inches of snow and snowdrifts that looked like midwest mountains. Our whole street spent morning and night digging out. It was a rare day where neighbors were all outside working together with a common goal peppered by random acts of kindness. The […]
