After all was said and done. 36 straight hours of snow. More than 24 inches of snow finally hitting the ground. It is day 3 and as you can see the plow hadn’t hit our street yet. We weren’t even on the list of streets to be cleared. As of this am (Monday) we are still not cleared. So everyone is home for one more day.
I enjoyed watching the magic of Peyton Manning get the offence going again, but the Denver Defense was amazing. I don’t like the Patriots much, so watching them not win was good. Watching the way they handled losing at the end was however, a bit of a waking up for me. They were classy and sporting about losing. Perhaps not as bad as I have always thought.
Snow removal crew threatened to Unionize on day 2. Nick watching his mom run the snow blower on the section of snow they had just loosened. There were fears of mom running them over with the snow blower but they got over it (eventually).
We let the Labs out a couple of items so they could see what we were doing in their front yard. I am not sure all this snow registered with them. The most snow Dylan has ever seen was the year Raven was born and that was only 12 inches. We did make it to the street early in the morning of the second day. It took a concentrated two hours to actually get the driveway clear. But over two days it wasn’t as bad. It wasn’t like we were going anywhere anyway. We had food, water and power. What else do you need?
The puzzle crew hard at work. They finished one puzzle and started on a second puzzle. Me, I would glue the finished puzzle, laminate it and then hang it on the wall. The puzzle team just quietly takes the puzzle apart and puts it back in the box.
Makes you want to distract them and borrow puzzle pieces. But that activity has been expressly banned by both members of the puzzle team. I was told if that (missing puzzle piece roulette I like to call it) ever happened again there would be blood coming out of my body and it would be my blood. I got the message and haven’t done it in years but still, when I see a puzzle on the table…
#Blizzard2016 was the first hash tag I saw on the news.
#Digout2016 was the second one. Both are cute.
#themeltedinnundation is the one I want to start. When it melts all that water has to go somewhere!
