Gosh, aren't snow days great? The kids are off school, the roads are impassable... but the best part of all is the fact that my work closed yesterday, and I still got paid for it! Woo hoo!
Of course, there was a downside to all this: shoveling.
The driveway was totally drifted in to about fifteen inches. Dense, compacted, pain in the ass. We were out there for a good hour; Sweetheart on the snowblower, Son and I on the shovels. And of course, the dog was running around for good measure. We had a drift by the back patio door that was almost six feet high, and we couldn't get the Weber out for grilling. This was a hardship no one should have to face.
But compared to upstate NY we lucked out okay. My folks are still up in that region--they consider themselves lucky with "only" seventy inches on the ground. Sheesh.
