The above photo somehow lost its caption: This is what our driveway looked like when we gave up early this evening. ( 6 o’clock pm- ish ).
We did not get the worst of yesterday’s monster Nor’Easter. Although:
It was a big one, and it clobbered areas not far from here.
And the photo below these words is of Cathi, trying to dig out the wood piled in a snow cave under a tarp…
Like I said, we gave up. We couldn’t get the shed doors open, but we did hack and shovel through the ice bomb riddled mini mountain of snow the plows tried to kill us with… And I did manage to get out and drive 3 kilometers to get coffee at Tim Horton’s down the road a piece.
—Um, so, -Yeah, We’re still alive. The snow I shoveled today was packed so hard it would have been easier to cut it and carry it away and stack it as bricks, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced this before, although my Alaskan relatives might have a couple words to describe it… (wink)
—But anyway, Happy Friday? ( It took me a while to find files and stuff and it is now 12:15 am Friday, the 28th of March, & it’s -5˚C / +23˚F … Wind Chill something like 14˚F / -7˚C ? )
—Shrug, Temperature sources might not match…
—Hang in there, we’re supposed to get ice pellets on Sunday…
