It was supposed to be 10 below this week, and I can’t tell you if it made it because I was nestled all snug in my bed. But this week, the schools in the area have been closed 5 days out of 5 because of cold, frozen roads and snow. I’m not sure of our exact amount, but we had nearly a foot of snow in the driveway. So, when a couple of teens came buy asking if we wanted it shoveled, the answer was “How much.” (I’m not stupid) and then, when they gave me a reasonable price, the answer was “YES!” It appeared to be a brother and sister, they did a fine job and I tipped them about 1/3 of what they were asking, just because I didn’t have to do it myself, they weren’t charging that much and did I mention– I didn’t have to do it myself! If it keeps snowing these big snows every year, I may have to break down and buy a snow blower. Or just keep paying whatever kids comes by to shovel.
As usual, when it snowed, I worked from home. This year, Philip was home as well. He’s missed a couple of snowdays in the last couple of years by being off in some warmer climate while I was snowed in, but this year, he was home. Since we are hooked up to work at home anyway, it is not a hardship to stay home and we didn’t have to play “avoid the maniac” on the roads.
Wherever you are, I hope you are warm and safe and going to have a great weekend.
