Snow Horse Sculpture

There’s a lot of artistic talent out there in Orange, and it’s good to see that children in the community were able to enjoy the massive amount of snow we received this week.

Here is a photo of a wonderful horse snow sculpture that a longtime Orange Live reader sent to us today. It graces the front lawn of a home on Orange Center Road, just north of Currier Drive.

What kind of snow creatures did you and your family make? A Giant Snowman, an Igloo, a snow fort, a snow family? Send us a photo at orangectlive01@gmail.com

Yes, you may include people in your pictures and if you want to include names and/or addresses, that’s fine, too. It’s up to you!

We’d love to feature as many as possible on our site before the next snowfall.

Snowfall059The snow began to fall around 2:15 a.m. By 3:30 a.m. we already had about 1/2 inch and the snowplows were running.

The Orange and Amity School closings were announced early – around 9 p.m. Wednesday night and surprisingly there was still bread and milk left in the stores.

What did you do to prepare for this storm?

Did it ruin any February Vacation plans?

How are you going to wait out the storm?

Will you shovel the snow in shifts to make it easier on yourself?

Do your children help clear the snow? Do they play in it? Are they content to stay inside?

Just a reminder, Grassy Hill Country Club is the ultimate sledding and tobogganing place in Orange, but it is private property and the police will be called to kick you out. So, keep that in mind if you’re heading out. A few weeks ago, a 17-year old girl was injured and had to be ‘rescued’ (carried out) by the Orange Volunteer Fire Department.

If you must drive, please be careful, the roads will be slick and there are still some people who don’t know how to drive in this New England weather.

Take care. Build an awesome snowman and make the best of this storm.
