Snow, and more snow


This is how the driveway looks from the road.

The snow drifted between our garage and the house; I used the snow shovel and made a path through it a while ago.

New Year's Eve, Cliff worked; but Tony, the guy he usually rides with, did not. Cliff drove our old pickup to work, since our car is helpless on snow and ice (we haven't been in it since before Christmas). When he got home New Year's Eve, he forgot to t turn the lights off on the truck; he's used to our car, which automatically turns its lights off if you leave them on. Three days later when we were going to go to the store, the pickup wouldn't start: The battery had not only run down, but had frozen so hard that the sides were bulged out.

Yesterday, more blowing snow. The Mahindra ("Ma", they call her) didn't want to start; but after some tender loving care, she came to life.


This makes the third time Cliff has had to clear the driveway; every time he gets it nicely cleaned, more snow comes along with plenty of wind to make it drift across the drive.
Calgon, take me away.

A good ole hot tub with that calgon does sound really good. I like bubble baths so much in the winter. Just soak and soothe...

That is a lot of snow. I have been reading Julie's blog and she says they have around 40 inches of that stuff and it comes to the deer shoulders when they come to eat the bird seed. Glad that we didn't get anything like that. Helen

Being a snow lover I'm a little, er, unsympathetic -- but it's only because I want more.

It sure is a lot of work though. ;)

Our snow this morning was just a baby compared to yours. Hope you're keeping warm.

Oh my goodness, it looks like the same scene we have around here! Well we do have more but I'm not bragging!!! haha! Almost time to get the ole' snowmobile out but it's supposed to get wicked cold here so I think I will pass.

You've given me something to be thankful for -- that we haven't as much snow as you.
