Guess we lucked out again

It was great to see a little bit of light fluffy snow on the sidewalks Friday morning instead of several inches as some weather forecasters predicted. And it seems the plowers were out and about clearing the snow and applying non skid on the roadways, which were pretty much just wet as we left for work. Of course, there are always slippery spots and caution is the name of the game, but it could have been so much worse.
