SOLSC – Day 16
Well, I spent the day shoveling, in half hour to forty-five increments. Seems that is about all I am good for these days.
Anyway, to begin with I had to work at pushing open the storm door because the snow had drifted onto the porch and had us trapped.
After getting the shovel and clearing off the porch it was back to the driveway. Before I could shovel a new spot I had to reshovel what I did yesterday because it had all drifted back. Frustrating!
As I was working, our neighbor came by with a front loader and began clearing the roadway that goes beside our house and back to his. At one point he stopped and asked me if I would like him to use the front loader on our driveway to clear as much snow as he could. He didn’t have to ask twice. This was a godsend because we bought a new washer and it is to be delivered on Friday. Wasn’t sure I would have all of the snow moved by then.
He got as close to the cars as possible so that we wouldn’t have too much left to shovel. When he left I got the snow behind my car moved and about half of the snow behind Kathy’s car.
Also had to reshovel the path to the bird feeders.
Still didn’t get the cars cleaned off or the mailboxes dug out. That’s for tomorrow. I did, however shovel a path to the bird feeder so that I could put some food in the feeders for them. I guess it’s all about priorities.
When I was a kid I my friends and I would look snow piles like this so that we could play on them and in them. Yes, we would dig tunnels through them…not the safest thing to do.
Things change as we get older.
