Fuck, that was intense.
Everyone all right?
Oh, and if you should happen to find my deck chairs…
We were marveling at the window. This morning the car is buried.
With storms like this it is almost an adventure just staying inside.
Last fall someone offered to shovel our backyard/driveway for $300 dollar after every storm. That seemed steep at the time, I kind of like shoveling and we’re too poor to hire other people to do our dirty work. But now I sometimes think we should have taken it. Th poor guy, who does do some of our neighbours yards, really has a very bad season.
Um, that was $300 for the *season.* Not for each snowfall.
After this week’s dump, a flat $300 to dig us out just this once sounds almost reasonable.
That’s less than a dollar a centimetre, which sounds like a bargain to me.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) I was out of town. So I wasn’t around to help my wife dig out our car. She was able to flag down a passing snow tractor that dug us out for $30. It was worth it because each of us were only able to clear away about a fifth of our driveway after a good 45 minutes of hard work. This is craziness. I just hope it doesn’t all melt at once.
