A second major snow storm blanketed North Platte with between 6 and 10 inches of snow. Imo measured the snow in our back yard at that depth even though the NWS reported only 6.5 inches. With this type of snow I’m going to purchase a snow blower. As my Dad told me when we were hit with the first storm. I know he is right. I hate shoveling snow. I do hope this helps with the drought we are having. At least there are some football games on the TV. [Update] The driveway is now about half shoveled and the walk is all shoveled. It is a heavy snow and I’m only able to shovel a little at a time. Perhaps regular exercise will be one of my goals for 2007.
