38. Towns Hit by Snowstorms
Redfield, New York, received twelve feet of snow
week. Its neighbors in Oswego are jealous because
got only ten feet of snow. An Oswego
told a TV reporter that one more storm
coming in that would determine the winner. "I
we get five more feet," he said. "That'll
Redfield." This is the most snow the region
received in six years.
"The people who worry
global warming should come visit us. They'll worry
," said a Redfield resident. He said any visitors
have to wait till some snow melted, because
local roads were closed. Even the snowplows were
until after the next storm before they began
clear all the roads.
Schools were closed all
. Most kids were happy about it. They couldn't
ice skating or skiing because the roads were
. But they did play in the snow, make
, and have snowball fights.
"It wasn't a good
for me," complained one high school student. "I
to help my dad shovel all the snow
the roof." When he finished doing that, his
asked him to shovel the snow off the
and the sidewalk. "I can't wait for school
reopen," he said.
