We do live in interesting times here in Gettysburg. Today (Tuesday) another storm is predicted to hit our area.  By tomorrow (Wednesday) another six to twelve inches of snow will supposedly be added to the over 20 inches of snow which we received on Saturday, February 6, 2010. In today’s post we’ll continue our walk towards East Cemetery Hill which we took on Sunday morning.
