The big news around Florence and Boone County over the last week has been the snow. The area continues to find itself covered in the white stuff and Boone County school students find themselves at home for another snow day. Though the snow does cause some headaches for everyone trying to get back and forth to their destinations, it also creates some beautiful scenery throughout Boone County.
One of the areas in Florence that provides a great show any time it snows is the Oakbrook community. After a good snow, the trees that line Oakbrook's main corridor provide one of the best places to go to see the beautiful snow painted on the trees. Today's Picture of the Day provides a great look at the snow covered trees in the Oakbrook area.
