The trouble with the aftermath of a blizzard is finding safe places to walk that are also interesting to photograph.  Unfortunately, options are limited in the immediate area.  In the early mornings, the melted snow has turned to black ice (this morning).  Sidewalks in small towns are haphazardly shoveled, which means forays in the streets.  Woodland trails are not clear or are quickly turning into a muddy mess.  Therefore, even though I am not fond of walking in subdivisions (don't get me wrong, I live in one), I decided today that a subdivision would have to be the place.

 

Holly Hills is a golf course community that parallels Rt. 70.  It is anchored by a large clubhouse on a hill overlooking the homes.  There was a walking path next to the road that had been cleared, so I didn't have to walk in the road.

 

Flocks of robins were high overhead in the trees.  Otherwise, there was very little activity, since kids were in school and homeowners were at work.
