So late last night I was informed that work would be closed on Wednesday. Good. School had been preemptively cancelled so this saved me a day of leave. When I crawled out of bed I was confronted with about 8 inches of snow and my two kids out in the middle of the driveway. They were putting snow in the wheelbarrow so they could make snowballs for a snowball fight. Since I had not yet snow-blowed the driveway they were making my job harder. Oh well, at least they were getting along. I went out and snow-blowed the driveway and then went and cleared the neighbors drive. There are three of us with the same size snow blower and one with a four wheeler that has a plow. We take care of the folks around us and most of us in a 7 or 8 house area were cleared out in an hour or so. I came in and Jason was trying to get his soaking wet jeans off. He has lost his snow pants, so jeans in knee deep snow don’t work so well. I went in the basement and found our old military uniform box. I gave him Chris’s old gore-tex pants to wear and although a little big they did the trick. Off he went with dry clothes and they have been out there all morning.
Not the largest storm we’ve had but still a pretty good one.
