Snowy days

We are covered in snow! Since Thursday night, it started to get really bad. On Friday morning, I wasn’t able to leave the driveway because they hadn’t plowed our street - I assume the small residential streets are not a high priority. I called my boss and told him that I would wait and then take my husband’s car. His Kia Optima seems to have more ground clearance than my VW Beetle, which has a hard time in deep snow. At 10am, I send my boss an email that they still haven’t plowed but that I am still planning on getting in. He told me to forget about it and that they officially close shop at noon. Yeah me - snow day rocks! I let Chuck do the snow blowing and just enjoyed my Friday.

Starting to Plow

Saturday was uneventful, but over night we got hit really bad again. This time, I thought I have to put my time in and help with the snow, so I actually ran the snow blower while Chuck raked the roof. It started out nicely but a westerly wind really had it out for me. Try to blow snow into the wind!

I actually managed to plow a whole row down to the road and I don’t think a single flake landed where I meant it to go. Most of it actually managed to cover me and at the end of it, I looked like Susanne, the Snowfrau!
