So Much Snow
Morning Friends, What a storm we've had-it snowed all yesterday and by the time hubby got home from indoor badminton, he said we had ten inches of snow out in front. It snowed lightly last night, but we got up early to shovel, as he was playing simulator golf today. What I can tell you is that we are so thankful for our neighbor across the street, because he was doing all the sidewalks with his snowblower when we got out front at 7:15. I immediately began shoveling the driveway where hubby's old Explorer sits, so he could get out. We only did 1/3 of the snow removal and it took us an hour. Norb cleared our driveway and also did the sidewalks on both sides of the court. Hubby actually admitted today would have been a good day to own a snow blower. I'm stating that because he has refused over the years that it would be useful, he just doesn't like them. I can say I love them. My big joke here is that if something were to happen and he couldn't go out to shovel, I would just buy a quad with a shovel on the front of it and do the whole court. I'm serious about that; though have to admit there is an older couple(in their 80's)that get out and shovel whenever we have snow and do the sidewalks too. She is my hero. I can also tell you that I can definitely feel my arm muscles after shoveling yesterday and today. If we continue to have snow amounts like this, hubby may just be willing to get a snow blower. The very first thing he did this morning was to clear the back stairs down to the patio and a path for Hunter to get to a covered area, so he could go to the bathroom. What a man! The photos of our front door don't look too bad, but we've got steps going up to it and believe me the snow was deep.
It's going to be another inside day today; I'm supposed to go to something at the library tonight, but I think it may be cancelled. I will be spending my time downstairs, squaring up my blocks and then sewing rows together. It feels so good to be on this part of the process, maybe one day soon the top will be together and I'll be able to show it to you.
I hope you have a good day and if you have snow like we do, stay warm.
