The Snow Cave

Happy Valentine’s Day dear readers! I hope that your day is filled with love and smiles, and maybe a little chocolate, or flowers, or you know whatever floats your boat.

Last week wrote about my “whammies” and I am pleased to report that this week there are only 2 “whammies” instead of uh…3. I am feeling better, but husband is still gone and there is still school work to be done. But the good news is my husband will be back in 3 weeks and my Power Point presentation on the Russian czar Peter the Great is going to be awesome! My other class on the other hand..you know we just won’t talk about that one.

Anyway.

It snowed here on Sunday for eight hours! Eight hours!! And this was my reaction…

When it stopped our neighbor was once again kind enough to plow our driveway (thank you neighbor!). But then it started up again…

Yep, my thoughts exactly. Yesterday I shoveled a good 8 inches of snow off the front walk, but had decided to put off the driveway until I actually needed to move the car. **You know I have never had to deal with this much snow. And not just snow but continuous snow. When I lived in North Texas and Germany we would get like 2 significant snow falls a season, here we get 2 significant snow falls a week! Crazy!!** Today I had to go to the store so I could not put off shoveling the driveway any longer. But first, (because as I learned a few days ago, one should clean off the car then shovel the driveway, ’cause that’s the smart way to do it!) I had to dig the car out of its snow cave, which looked like this..

The layer of snow on that car was a good 6 inches thick! And yes it was heavy. I mean why is snow so heavy?! Then I had to shovel the immediate area around the car which had not been plowed, which was a good 8 or 9 inches thick, or tall. Not sure which is correct. After that was the bit of the driveway behind the car, to include the nice heavy icy chunks that the “Snow Plow Man” left at the end of the driveway. I’m just going to hope that the higher temperatures we are supposed to get this weekend will melt the rest of it. Of course the snow that is forecasted to fall on Thursday will probably complicate that plan, but I’m learning that is just the way “the cookie crumbles” in these parts. By the time I was finished I was so…tired but, I still had drag myself to the store. And to my surprise, I spent less time grocery shopping than I did removing snow from the car and half, Half!, of the driveway. **sigh**

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go sit at my imaginary piano and…

Until next time,
