I'm about to quit for the day. I'm beat!
The snowblower's wheels came off the axle and went flat-- it could not handle the depth of snow in the driveway at all. (It's 29" deep and would have been deeper but I shoveled 4" yesterday.) We managed to use it to throw the snow by shoveling the snow into it and advancing very slowly, but it ran out of gas-- and it turns out my dear husband had not bought extra gasoline, not quite believing the forecast. He is out there now trying to siphon gasoline out of our car gas tank (and not succeeding.)
Meanwhile we have been breaking our backs shoveling. And the snow at the sides of the driveway where we have shoveled is so high there is almost nowhere to put it any more.
The street has not been plowed. When the plow comes by, we will have several more feet. Well, maybe not several feet, but it will be heavy and icy and hard to clear.
Thank God we have power! It's supposed to drop to -8º F tonight. There are towns without power.
I doubt there will be school this upcoming week. I suspect the school district will just move the winter vacation up.
We'll carry on tomorrow. I figure we are about 1/4 done.Happy Anniversary to PerfumedLady and the Mr.!
