Weathermen and Digging Out
Gee, I wish the weather people would stop assuring us that today's storm will "hardly be any problem at all". I know it isn't bringing us anything like what we've had in the past week. But don't they realize that ANY more snow and freezing rain is just too much after what we've had. The longer this continues, the harder it is to take, even if "It's only a little".
Meantime, I got a call Saturday from Kitty, the California contingent, to tell me they made it safely to Massachusetts and the other grandparents. There is snow there too, but only 5 to 6 inches. Perfect for Isaac to play. She has started blogging again, so I'm hoping for further word on their visit there.
And yesterday, Rita came with her shovel and dug out my handicap ramp, etc. Here she is, working her way up, seen from the window. Couldn't do it from the back door down, because we couldn't even open the back door. It will be so good to be able to actually go outside again! And think of it - I'll even be able to put out the trash! But the car isn't going anywhere yet. This is the view down the driveway. That is still deep snow for at least 30 feet, with ice at the end.
Rita took the icicle picture at her house, from her front door. I love it.
