Pat Shingleton: "Getting Plowed"

In our younger years, a heavy snowfall sent us outdoors. Neighborhood pine trees offered a traditional winter prank. I would encourage my brother Kevin to stand under the snow laden branches. I would then vigorously shake the branches, unloading 20 pounds on his head. Another "big snow" treat was "laying-down" on the bank of our front lawn. One of our "scouts" would watch for the snowplow. Within minutes a pile of snow was on top of us. A similar incident occurred last November in New York's Hudson Valley. Two boys were accidentally covered with snow and trapped after a snowplow was clearing a parking lot. The boys were buried for hours and police officers and neighbors saved the youths by digging through a seven foot mound of snow.
