It was only the beginning

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 March 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

After a winter season of only two inches of snow which had fallen in November of 2016, we were hoping that winter would go out like a lamb. That would not be the case.

A snowstorm from the west, coupled with lake-effect snow from the north pummeled Lake County shoreline communities with fourteen inches of snow.

As the title implies, this was only the beginning with lake-effect snow continuing in waves most of the day on March 14, 2017.
