Wednesday, January 14, 2015, will be remembered as a crispy cold day on which people crunched their way to work and play! Trees sprouted branches and leaves of ice and temperatures leveled off in the single digits.
The second “real” snowstorm of the Winter season began its work Sunday evening and continued through Monday morning, with village and state snowplows and local snow jockeys with their own plowing blades appearing in every neighborhood of our little city.
And it snowed, and trucks kept trucking;
and geese kept flying southwesterly;
and work crews kept crewing;
and pups kept asking, “Go where?”;
until it stopped with Winter white trees sparkling through, and a big Winter statement ended, once again;
As we get ready for the Winter cold, I photographed our fading leaves and trees in the city, complete with wires, lights, signs, and poles! It’s kind of a fun way to see Fall… The bridge in Napoleon cuts through the city, dividing it in half. It crosses the Maumee River, a main waterway that runs Northeast to Toledo, Ohio, and Southwest to Cincinnati, a course that in the 1800s cradled the great Maumee & Erie Canal system.
