Shoveling in the arctic blast
Tuesday, January 07, 2014
No, that's not our car, thank goodness! But it happened near here. Two days ago, there were 200 car accidents and 400 motorists calling for help to the Michigan police. It's fierce out there!
Just came inside after inhaling a lot of arctic air! I was attempting to clear our back deck of snow that comes almost to my waist. Great exercise! It takes a lot of effort to keep our driveway open, so the deck has been neglected. But I'm hearing stories about people's decks collapsing under the weight of all the pretty, white stuff. So I thought I'd better get out there.
As I glanced up and down our sub-division, I realized that a lot of ladies look like fashion-plate snow bunnies, while I tend to shovel in my thrift store bag lady look. LOL.
This is going to be our second day with no mail delivery---the mailman can't get through the drifts in our subdivision. For some reason, we seem to be the last neighborhood to get plowed. Just yesterday, our next door neighbor got his 4 wheel drive truck stuck about a block from home.
We do have heat and plenty of food. Thankful! Feeling sorry for the road workers who are working round the clock in this arctic blast.
