They told us we might have snow but something within me said, « No! ». I was wrong.
I woke up to see snow on the rooftops.
I looked outside and it didn’t seem to be so much snow. I went out to walk the dog after setting the coffee in place.The snow was more than I had expected, it was at least two inches and it was slushy. The real surprise was that although the snow was slushy, it was twenty-two degrees outside.
Is winter really here? Is it going to be a long winter? Or are we just being teased? There is really no way to know.
I spent way over an hour in two shifts to be able to remove the snow. It was not the easiest and my biggest challenge was the huge pile of leaves at the end of the driveway, in the apron. Yesterday, that pile of leaves was three houses away, south of us, and somehow moved to our driveway. First I had to remove the snow and then I got the leaves and moved them onto our narrow sidewalk just north of the driveway and leaving enough space for the garbage and recycling containers.
The really crazy side of this is the low temperatures. Supposedly the snow is to stop in the afternoon and then it is going to get much colder. I wonder what much colder really means. Meanwhile, the snow is blowing and seems to be less effective at getting any more coverage.
Time will tell…
