Each time a person uses the drive-thru lane at a fast food restaurant, or stops into a convenience store for a soda or bag of chips, or darts in and out of the grocery store for an item or two, they get a handful of change.  Most people have a place, either in their car or somewhere in the house, where they plop all of that “unwanted” change.  A jar on the dresser, a cup in the car, or maybe a piggy bank on a dusty shelf in a closet all are potential sources for giving.

    A blizzard is a severe storm condition characterized by low temperatures, strong winds, and heavy blowing snow. By definition, the difference between a blizzard and a snowstorm is the strength of the wind.

Regardless of the variety of blizzard, they can bring near-whiteout conditions, which restrict visibility to near zero.
