A good helping of winter

Though the snow brought communities across Charlotte County to a halt Friday night into Saturday, it proved productive for many youngsters. Such was the case for 3-year-old September Tharpe, of Drakes Branch. Using her mitten-warmed hands, she “cooked up” snow for her family, serving it up in plastic cups and other containers. Though her recipe will last, the snow won’t, with temperatures predicted in the 60s later this week. See more submitted snow photos on page 2 and online at www.thecharlottegazette.com.
