More Winter Weather

It’s another long Friday. Woke up to a major Nor’Easter.  They predicted it, but as usual they were a bit off. Claimed it was going to get bad Thursday so a bunch of schools cancelled.  Bad decision made from bad advice. When I picked up an early release at noon the sidewalks were dry.  Not a flake around.

That changed sometime over night.  The storm moved in with a vengeance.  By 4:00 a.m. we had a good six inches and it just kept piling up.  By 8:00 a.m. it was up to my husband’s knees.  I know this because I watched him push the snow blower while I tried to shovel. Two hours later we thought we were done, but it had accumulated enough to have to shovel again.  We shoveled a third time after venturing out to the store and it’s now all clear.  Melted in fact.

I used to get all excited about a big storm.  Fill water jugs, fill the bathtub, get stocked up on non perishables, and of course bread and milk.

Now I yell and swear at the weather people if they mention snow.  Now it means back-breaking shoveling, roof raking, and more often than not, losing a days pay.  There’s no fun left in it.

Spring is just around the corner they say.  I hope so because my shovel is broken and my back has gone on strike.  I won’t be shoveling again…until next time.

    LOL!!! “Back gone on strike!” That my dear friend is why I live in the south. I cannot even remember the last snow I saw. Summers are bad though, but I would rather tough that then snow storms. Hope you have had a good week with your Mom. Ours has been pretty good. Loved the post and God Bless, SR

      SR I couldn’t live down south. At least way down south. Maybe Carolina’s or Virginia but that’s it. I think I go into denial every once in a while and block out the fact that she has AD. Until she says something like “do you know when I moved in here I didn’t know where I was because I hadn’t seen you in so long.” I know I wasn’t there every day but minimum twice a month.
      I’m glad you had a good week. They are hard to come by. Have a wonderful & restful weekend.
