We could have used a sleigh to go with these bells today! The weather people were dead on with the forecast. We have a ton of snow and tonight it's blowing and howling like a wolf out on the frozen tundra.
And tomorrow it's dipping into the single digits with below 0 overnight. Let's see....who out there in blog land would like me to send some your way? No? and I thought everyone wanted a white Christmas?
Poor Dave! All he did all day was shovel snow and carry firewood into the basement.
We are the only ones in the neighborhood without a snow blower. I always have to chuckle a little when the neighbor guys ( who are all younger than Dave) get out their snow blower's and plows attached to ATV's and Dave's out there givin' er with a shovel. Check out Al our neighbor up in the right hand corner of the photo above with his snow blower.
Another neighbor John, who lives between us and my Mom's was kind enough to snow blow her driveway for her today. I guess he thought Dave had his work cut out in our driveway.
Well Hon, don't put the shovel away just yet. The drifting will start in tonight you know!
This afternoon my brother in MN called and told us he went out and bought a new snow blower today.
He sounded almost embarrassed to tell us! However, they did get about two feet of snow there last night and today. I'm glad he bought one. He's a truck driver and gone on the road most of the week. I think when he's home he likes to be doing something other than shoveling the huge banks of snow that the plows leave on the sidewalk by his house.
As for me? Well, I don't shovel snow with or without a snow blower. My preferred place is right here in front of the fireplace! Been hookin' a little. Will show you what soon.
Stay safe where ever you are. Find your self a good shoveler or maybe invest in one of them thar snowblowers if you're in the path of this storm. It was a doozy!
