But yesterday, we had a lot of the white stuff grace our town.
Remember my only hang up about moving here from Squirrel Gables--the lack of a driveway? Well we came to find out that on snow days we could park at the softball field recreational parking lot two blocks from our house. It's about a three minute walk. Five when you're up to your knees in snow.
As the first flakes came down, we parked our cars over there.
I went out there this morning to survey the damage.
Eh. Not too bad. Dr. Mad Scientist's car shielded mine from the blowing snow so his car was more buried than mine. Which is OK since he's off all week.
Here's one side of his hood.
And here's the other.
The drifts were up to my crotch in some places!
I was able to clear our cars pretty easy in the rec parking lot. My only concern now is whether or not they'll plow the parking lot (they had already done so once sometime yesterday) and the road that leads to the parking lot.
Chunky's getting the most out of the snow.
Chunky is 4'8" tall. There's your reference for these piles of snow they made.
He's been outside today literally since 8:00 a.m. (it's now 1:30 p.m.) with a one hour break for lunch playing in the snow and helping Downstairs Neighbor blow everyone out with the snowblower. Chunky will break the berms up with the shovel making them less dense for Upstairs Neighbor to plow thru.
Moochie on the other hand has been content to hang out inside.
And supervise operations from the warmth of the house.
Can you tell which child was born in Michigan and which one in New Jersey? Ha ha!
