So over a week ago the snow started, December 5th, to be exact. The library closed at 4:00 p.m. and everyone slid on home. My office mate and next door neighbor knows of my extreme phobia of driving in this kind of weather so he suggested he pick me up that morning and take me home after work. Fortunately,the Director is also aware and adjusted my work hours to accommodate my 'taxi's' schedule. Early the next morning I got the call that we were not to attempt going to work because of the weather and the amount of snow that had fallen. Yeah! A snow day! Here you can see how much snow fell in that 12 hours - poor Eyeore...covered in almost a foot of snow.
Next we have the spot where my car had been parked for 2 days so my office partner could drive right into my garage a pick me up and drop me off so I didn't have to try to maneuver in snow/ice.
I decided to try to shovel the snow on the apron behind my car....now, mind you, I've never shoveled snow in my life. After about 20 minutes, you can see below, I decided to stop before I suffered a heart attack or a stroke. I was beat! That, there, is about 3 feet by 8 feet on the right side of the apron...I did another patch about the same size the next day.
On behalf of myself, my husband, and all the animals, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you all for stopping by.
