And Happy Fat Tuesday as well! (I didn’t realize this until this morning when I started seeing Carnival pictures all over the place – I thought it was later this year.) So, go have a pancake.
We got around 5″ of snow, which if you live in Boston is nothing. Here, it can screw things up really, really fast. Gotta give props to VDOT – according to the plowing website (which is really cool) our neighborhood is still “in progress” – but our street looks damn good to me. We had trucks coming by all night long.
It was also a really dry, light, powdery snow – so much easier to shovel. My brother & I took turns last night trying to keep ahead of it as much as we could, and this morning I heard him out there at 7:30 finishing it off. (It’s not often we’re the first to have our walks done when it snows – I’m sure our neighbors are confused.) Yes, we have a very kind neighbor with a snowblower – but I would like to reserve his kindness for when we get cardiac arrest snow. :)
I’ll be honest, I really don’t know how the people in Boston are managing it this winter. Just looking at the pictures makes me want to move south.
The upside to the snow? It’s a beautifully sunny day today, and with the reflection of the snow, there is more natural light in the house than there is on an average day in July. I can handle that.
Stay warm and dry.
