January has finally brought some snow to the area, enjoyed by some and hard work for others.

School started two hours late Jan. 12 as road crews and residents cleared the four inches of snow that fell overnight. Doris Snyder, 78, wasn’t bothered by the 25 degree temperature as she shoveled at her Antrim Township home. “The good Lord gave me the power, so I’m going to do it,” she said. “Really, it’s lovely out here this morning.” School was cancelled Jan. 18 due to 2 inches of overnight snow and icy conditions.
