After a lovely dinner with Dr. Joanie, we walked to our cars, only to discover it was snowing and blowing. I cautiously drove home, staying in the paths made by the cars before me. What a shock it was to get to my garage to discover no plows have been here all day. I opened the garage door with my remote and gunned the engine, heading straight for the narrow opening. Part way up the apron, my car hung up on the more than 10 inches of new snow. What to do? I got out of the car, trudged through the snow to the shovel I keep in my garage and began shoveling, and shoveling. Peder was right - it's heart attack snow - very heavy, and still coming down. When I thought I had cleared enough of the white stuff, I trudged back to my car, put it in gear, and gunned it straight into the garage. Thank You, Lord, for helping me manage the narrow door without hitting anything. I walked back to the street to make my way to my door. The snow had drifted over 15 inches on the sidewalk. Where on earth is our snow removal service?
I just read the snow removal guidelines for my association: sidewalks are cleared within 12 daylight hours once the snow has stopped. This is ridiculous! How do they expect residents to navigate?
I've been in the house an hour and my cheeks are still cold. Winter! I'm so ready for Spring!
