Snow in Nauvoo

When you get two feet of snow and then try to shovel the sidewalks and plow the streets, you get a much higher pile of snow. This was one of the largest snow storms the midwest has received in recorded history. Nauvoo, that never closes had sites closed for two days, half of Tuesday, all of Wednesday and half of Thursday. It was amazing! (Not being closed, having that much snow)
Although this doesn't show the depth of the snow, what it does show is how beautiful snow can be, especially when it is the frame for the magnificent Nauvoo Temple.

That really is pretty. Not so much from the other side of the snow shovel I presume?
