Three Years Ago …

I ran across this awesome file photo today from Forum photographer David Samson shot in 2009.

With just a foot of snow so far this winter, shots like these remind us how harsh the weather can be most winters.

Remember, this shot was taken on the last day of March. While we appear to be inching ever closer to spring (and once again hear the sounds of drivers drilling range balls at area golf courses), winter here in the valley doesn’t always follow the calendar.
