The neighbors across the way lent me their snowblower this morning. Even with the snowblower, it took almost an hour to clear my drive.
Now: For the first time, I'm seriously thinking about buying a snowblower. It was AMAZING!
My back was tired from digging yesterday, and it would have been really unhappy with the amount of digging I'd have had to do to clear this. I'm so happy not to have to dig all of it.
I don't know how people who live where it snows several feet at a time all the time do it. I'm guessing a snowblower is even more important there?
Can I say how very happy I am not to be part of the Donner Party? And how happy I am to have plentiful food in the house!
No telling when the city plows will come here. I've heard that they've been over some of the city twice (the storm lasted pretty much all day yesterday, so they went through and went through to keep more important roads somewhat clear). Hopefully they'll get here today sometime.
