If there ever was a polar opposite of the snow that fell three weeks ago in Lancaster County, this week’s snow storm was it.
The former, much anticipated and brief, came the day after Christmas, settling postcard beautiful. The roads, for the most part, left unscathed and open.
Then there was this one, drab and gray, a snow event that started off lovely enough, but soon turned to sleet and freezing rain, leaving roads nearly impassible and slick as hockey rinks. The effects are still being felt.
