Mt. Lebanon Digs Out After 4th-Greatest Recorded Snowfall

Lebanon Emergency Management Agency declared a snow emergency, and most residents spent the morning in their homes, watching the snow fall.

In the early afternoon the snow subsided, and residents ventured outdoors. The youngest took to sledding and other forms of wintry merriment, but most residents started the laborious process of shoveling themselves out. Casey West tweeted that it took him (and his helpers) about three and a half hours to finish the job.
