Snow Blown









Foot 2 and then some over a span of 14 days.











Did you know that according to Ask.com, white is made when all colors of the visible spectrum are combined? Somehow that’s hard to believe when blanket upon blanket of the stuff is visited upon you. When I look out on my yard, aside from the variety of bumps and hills, it’s pretty monotonous out there.
          Still, yesterday had its moments. 



          We had little visitors to our doors,
         in front 



and in back.















     On our small dead-end street of three houses we usually don’t see anything bigger 
than a town truck with a plow. Yesterday they brought out the big guns.


          I’m sure they meant well, but the driver shoved away all our helpful reflectors marking the end of our property, left a five-foot wall of snow at the end of our driveway, and took out the neighbor’s mailbox.
          We had made one pass mid-day with the snow blower, and it’s a good thing we did. Since it snowed All - Day - Long, we went out after dinner to take out the newest eight inches. 
           Result? The belt on our trusty machine broke, providing aerobic entertainment for our evening. 

          And it’s always interesting when you can prove the truth of a maxim.
        Things truly do come in threes:
          1- ceiling   2- refrigerator 3 - snowblower

  7. Ouch on # 3 but at least you can relax now that 3 is a done deal. I know it is a ton of work but snow sure is pretty.

  8. You're getting a good workout. Sometimes i'm not sure the snow plowing is worth it when they plow more than snow.

  9. I sort of miss the white stuff. I looked forward to shoveling snow in Colorado, since we didn't get it all the time, Here, it's very rare indeed. And yes, they do often seem to come in threes, don't they? :-)
