There is no snow in our forecast for at least the next week. I love the snow. Going to town today and seeing mounds of snow along Center Creek and seeing white for as far as I could see in the pasture down the road, it was just beautiful. At one point, Jeremy looked out and said “Isn’t it just beautiful!” He knows how much I love snow. I don’t even mind shoveling it when it’s like it was this time – grainy and lightweight. It’s that wet, sloppy, back breaking heavy snow I don’t like to shovel.
Last week I didn’t put my trash out because of ice so this week, I really needed to get the can to the road. There was only one way to do that . . make a path.
Honestly, looking at that driveway, you’d think this was a happening place. You’d never know that not a single vehicle had been down the driveway in two weeks . . til today. Besides Jeremy picking me up and bringing me back, the mail man came and then someone else came to bring mail they had received, then a package was left by the garage door so that must have been Fed Ex or UPS.
I went out and shoveled a path just wide enough to get the trash can to the road. I tried to make the path where the tired had been running over the snow so that doesn’t all turn to packed ice tonight but I probably didn’t do a great job. I got the trash can to the road and that’s what I was trying to do so I’m saying “Mission Accomplished”!
I thought . . I really should work on these steps and walkway but I’ve done enough for today. It will be 33 Friday. Even with the high today only being 22, you can see that the sun was melting some of it already so I’m going to wait. I figure Mother Nature made this mess, she can help clean it up, right?
