The storm and wind lasted until noon today. I started to go up town this forenoon, but did not go farther than Neill’s; it was bad walking. Fred brought my mail to me this afternoon. I had a letter from Isaac’s on business. I went up town myself this afternoon and called at Mr. Harvey’s, then got a shovel for snow, and a few other things and came home.
