Snow, snow and more snow.

Yesterday we woke up to about 18” of snow in our driveway and spent most of the morning shoveling out ours and other driveways in the neighborhood. I felt bad for my neighbor, who was given a snowblower by a family member. He tried it out for the first time yesterday and a part broke right off. So he borrowed some bolts and whatnot from me to get it fixed. Once it was all back together, he couldn't get it started. So another neighbor helped him dismantle the carburator, clean it out and get it all in working order again. He finally got it started as his wife and I were finishing up shoveling his driveway. I told him the way things work out, we probably won't get any more snow now that he has his machine fixed. But, I was wrong. It snowed again last night and we woke up to a few more inches of snow.

As I was shoveling, I was thinking about my new home plan I just designed. My lot is fairly wide and my wife and I discussed making the garage a side entry. I decided against it (probably to my wife's dismay) because if you have a side entry garage (and only have access from the front of your lot) you'll have twice the amount of driveway to shovel. So when I was shoveling the 18” of snow that was getting heavier as the day warmed up... I was grateful that we decided against it.

So, to those of you that live in the warmer States, be thinking of those of us that can't get to work in the morning because we have so much snow. I wouldn' trade where we live though. It's great living here, even though it snows a lot from time to time.
