After the second storm, they were empty. Before the storm, people stocked up to hunker down, and trucks couldn't get in to resupply after the storm hit. Last Saturday things were pretty much back to normal.

It's a little early for them to predict the snow amounts. I'm hoping for no more than a light dusting.

Just go. Nothing like a fully functional and fueled escape vehicle to bring peace of mind.

No, why go when I can stay home and worry about it.
I woke up a billion times thinking about it. I could have gone a 8am. Read the newspaper and had a cup of coffee in the tire place and come back home to sleep......but nooooooooooooooo. Why listen to reason!
Especially when sons car is just sitting there till Friday!

I don't even listen to me!

She was asking are you were tired snow, I believe.



No, every time it snows you need to move it around. I wanted to know if he was happy with the placement of the current crop of snow.

You see, in Queens, my parents insisted on using the garage and the driveway had to be shoveled clean . The problem was it was between buildings and every shovel full needed to be walked to the front or back of the house. There was very little space to put the snow. It was a huge pain in the butt!
Dad had a bad heart and so I shoveled. So did my friend. Somehow the spoiling of only children hadn't been tried back then! Being an only child just meant you were the only one to do it!
Then I had to do the grandparents. Including making sure you could get to the street and clearing the sewer so the water could drain right when it melted( which nobody does today!)

So I feel the pain of the snow!

At hubbys house, with 8 kids, they never shoveled snow. Not until the parents got old and couldn't walk over it. I was astounded! Hubby still doesn't care if it is there or not. As long as he can get his car out, he is OK.

How many times have you shoveled your driveway?


Once per storm. I think that's three so far. Wait, I shoveled it twice for the last one (one in the morning, one after it finished), so four.

I just widened the drivable part of the driveway last night. Does that count as another shoveling?

The whole concept of changing the tire never came up. I'm sure I have a full size tire too. It is a minivan and the tire is under the car. You have to crank it down. The are special spots to put the jack.
I have never done it. It is a huge pia. I wonder if the spare even has air anymore.

Yes! That is what happens. Then if it snows again, you need to make room for that snow. I hate the apron at the street with the heavy snow from the plow. The guys next door have a real plow, but by the time they get here I usually did it.

I have to drive over a little ridge to get from my driveway onto the street (which itself is several inches of hard packed snow).

I used to have to keep the drive scraped to the cement. (it's inherited-my dad still does). I've gotten lazy & over it, about the only time I shovel is if we get more than 4-6 inches or after the plow goes by. (The drive is on an alley, so it doesn't get touched the same as the street)
I do, on the other hand, keep the front walk done--mostly for the mail carrier. We don't use the front most of the winter because of the alley access. Speaking of which, I should see how much snow we've gotten today.

Back later....

I hate slipping on driveway ice when I get the paper in the morning, so I try to shovel to the concrete before either my wife or I drive over the snow.

Yeh, you get that instant ice pack when you drive on it....it's a pain.
I quit being so particular about the front walk. A few years back (10 or 15, I don't remember) I always scraped everything down, everyday. Well, we had sun in th afternoon one day that melted enough snow to wet the pad at the bottom of the steps, it froze that night into black ice and a friend came over in the morning, slipped, fell & broke her wrist. The salt I had put down the day before basically had washed away.
Now I figure, alittle snow doesn't hurt and people are more careful if they see something there.....

Often when it snows here, there's just enough to clog up the rain gutters on the roof. When that happens, water from melting snow tends to drip down on one spot on the front walk, which freezes at night to glassy smooth black ice.

And yet this winter being so warm is driving me nuts! Yesterday and today were OK. I could wear my coat and there is a hint of cold in the air. Also the bedroom got cold enough last night to sleep.
On the warm days, even with the heat off, it has been 70 degrees at night in the bedroom.

I just wish the doctors weren't always saying not to shovel. If they said it was really good exercise we could feel good about it.

Sort of, but there's not much water build-up; just a little dripping at one spot.

Well my tire is fixed. The sun came out. I just had my english muffin and coffee. I should shut off the TV and the computer, get my camera and go take a walk to that bag again. Bring a stick. I wonder if the "item" was in the bag, or if it was just the box.
Some kids (shudder) or a dog must have found the bag by now.
Kids would see that photo. I bet that bag would smell good to a dog.
OMG, there might be a dog running around with a purple hallow strap on! That would make some picture!

fisting is done in many, many places (geographically speaking).
I, however, have never experienced nor want to experience it. Nor performed it. Not my style.
