It’s a Christmasâ„¢ Miracle

On Wednesday of last week, it started snowing.

It didn’t stop snowing until Friday.  After all was said and done, we had gotten around 27 inches (68.6 cm) of the white fluffy crap.  While having snow for Christmasâ„¢ is great, that much all at once wasn’t.

My car, while it has all wheel drive, also has air dams and such, leaving very little clearance between the road and it’s lowest point.  This means that when there’s an ass load of snow on the ground, we’re pretty much stuck where we are (or risk ripping chunks off the car).  Essentially, we’ve been stuck in the house since last Thursday.

Here’s a few pictures of the damage… click on the thumbnails for a larger view:

While this is pretty and all, being trapped because the road sucked much butt was a pain in the butt.  Thank goodness we have a deep freezer full of food!

But then, last night… something amazing finally happened…. the city plows came to our dead end street!!  This was only, of course, after my neighbor called and yelled at them.  Thank you, neighbor!!!  I was starting to get concerned because I run out of my meds tonight and the perscription has been filled and waiting at the pharmacy since last week.  Now we’ll be able to pick them up!  Also… I haven’t been able to ship any Christmasâ„¢ packages yet… so they may be late (sorry Dad!).  I’ll be sending those today (overnight if possible).

Oh… and if you’re wondering why I put a “â„¢” after Christmas… it’s because the holiday has been totally commercialized.

    Looks like you need to put a new light bulb in the westernmost light fixture on the front of your garage!

    Had about the same here, 24 inches. Shovelled the driveway 5 times and it’s still falling. Rain tomorrow causing more problems, flooding. Glad I’m semi retired.
