Ah, this is New England, no such luck in dodging the bullet as seemed to be the case at one point today. We did have a brief respite, then it came back with a furious finish complete with thunder and lightning. Yes, not often you get that with a snow storm but there were at least three bursts inside an hour.
And then the sky started clearing:
Time for me to shovel.
But that is all done now. I am warm and ready for dinner.
