Since we are facing another week of temperatures in the 100 degree range, L. suggested I post a photo from March, 2009. It wasn't quite a blizzard, but close. Later in the fall of that year, L. installed plastic over the screened in portions of the porch which eliminated the snow mess and made a warm porch during the winter. In the spring, he removed it. I think it has become a twice a year job now.
