Our snow (and ice) day

Even weeds were beautiful yesterday with their coats of ice. Photo by Wendi Dunlap.
We saw a lot of folks sledding, snowboarding, and innertubing down steep South McClellan.
Neighbor Cindy Vanous writes: "A few months ago, we had the 'remuddled' front and back porches of our 1923 Beacon Hill home removed and rebuilt according to the 1930’s census photo of the house. We also had new windows built in the same lovely style as the originals, and painted the whole thing to better show off the details… yesterday evening, it all paid off in one perfect photo. This is what I love about our hill: street after street of these beautiful Craftsman bungalows, still standing strong after earthquakes, windstorms, countless shifts in architectural fashion, and nearly a century of everyday use."
