Snow Plow Happiness

Weather Report:

We have had some very unpleasant weather this winter.  It’s not that it’s been bitterly cold or there’ve been great dumps of snow.  It is the warm weather that brings us freezing rain and ice pellets then freezing to a huge coat of ice on everything-your vehicle, your front step, your sidewalk.  Today school buses are cancelled, walking outside is treacherous and if you are able, you might want to stay in your pyjamas until it’s time to go to bed tonight.

Cleaning the Driveway:

Out I went this morning, ice chipper and shovel in hand. I gave it a good go for over an hour and made some headway.  I shoved the crud onto our street.

Happiness!

On days like this, it’s wonderful to find happiness in unusual places.  

Like the snow plow that shows up AFTER you have pushed the snow onto the street!  This is almost as good as winning a lottery. In my case, this is good for smiles at least till dinner time.

  1. Same happened to me and it does make you smile, doesn’t it?
    Ice is no fun. We are at -10 to -20 the past few days and it is much easier to drive or walk when it is cold.
    I hope winterlude will not be cancelled.
