We had our biggest snowfall of the year from late Tuesday to late Wednesday. It still wasn’t all that huge, but it got lots of people outdoors dealing with it. I was out shovelling three times and could have made it four. I just don’t like it to get too thick; I’d rather shovel a little two or three times than a lot once. Mind you, there was more than a little bit on Wednesday.
I thought I would just share a few snaps with you. I’m sure there will be much jealousy experienced by many, but you’re welcome to pay us a winter visit. Our rates are reasonable.
Looking out back from our bedroom window. The road has been ploughed at least once, but it is still not totally clear. The rest of the pictures were taken out front.
Our Good Neighbour loves to be outdoors in all kinds of weather. When I went out to shovel for the third time, she was shovelling someone else's driveway. One morning recently, I opened the door and found her shovelling my driveway. She said she was full of energy that day. I actually wanted to do it myself with Nikki Dee, but I wasn't about to argue. You can see the top her dog's head over the snowbank.
The guy across the street had a huge pile of snow dumped in front of his driveway because Bad Neighour had left his car out, and the plow had to go around. However, Good Neighbour (above) let this guy use her snowblower. He should buy her dinner at a very nice restaurant because it would have been an exhausting job by shovel.
Another shot of the same guy really getting into the snowbank.
Looking north, this is our street. It was garbage day, so some bins were still out. A couple of kids were walking home from school.
Across the street but a bit to the south, a few kids were out playing and shovelling.
The hound was out barking his fool head off. He's still young. Hopefully, he'll settle down a bit. I think he just wanted to get in on the action.
Good Neighbour used her blower to get rid of the mound in front of our driveway. In the background, the guy who just got rid of his pile (in the above photos) is now clearing his neighbours' driveway.
That’s about it. A good storm brings out the best and worst in people, fortunately more people are gooder than badder.
