A Weekend Out of Time
This morning about one third of our snow was gone, but it was still impossible to drive out of our neighborhood. My husband and I set off to buy our bread on foot; many villagers were out shoveling snow, or, like us, walking down to the local grocery store. We were surprised, however, at the number of cars on the newly snow-plowed roads. It seemed to be something of a challenge to get vehicles out after a day without driving. Tomorrow, most likely, employees will go back to work and schoolchildren will go back to school. But we all will have had a small taste of a different atmosphere.
