Looking at the silver lining
Steve Janes Blog
Although the devastation from Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast has headlined the news over the past several days, and this is not an attempt to minimize the overall destruction and loss of human life, I have to admit there are some side effects that have really caught my attention.
Snow. And lots of snow.
Other reports include 26 inches in Redhouse, MD, 24 inches in Bowden WV, 24 inches in Wise, VA, 20 inches in Mt. Leconte, TN and 14 inches in Payne Gap, KY. We know the folks in upstate Pennsylvania and New York knew what to do with the snow they got.
Although the tragedy occurring on the East Coast is heartbreaking, a less serious tragedy is the fact that most of this snow is going to melt without a single snowmobile track marking it up.
This leaves many in the West wondering, with sleds loaded on trailers and ready to go, “Does Sandy have any sisters?”
