Snow Day!

Category: Uncategorized – Mommy Rimes – 9:19 am

Even though it was a Sunday, we still had ourselves a lovely snow day.  We all got up at 7 am and peeked out the windows to see the snow falling in light, flaky drifts.  How pretty.  Daddy thought, hmmm, maybe I should go out and shovel.  Mommy said, nah, let’s eat some breakfast first.  8am and we peek outside again, and the snow is falling so thick that we couldn’t see the houses across the street.  yikes!  Now is not a good time for shoveling either.  Let’s play a game!

9 am, let’s call Papa and see if they’ve gotten out of their driveway yet for church.  Nope.  They didn’t finish their driveway until 10, but then couldn’t get out of their driveway because the roads hadn’t been plowed.

11 am.  No church, maybe we should start shoveling.  Daddy goes out to start shoveling and makes a teeny tiny path to the garage.  Mommy goes out a little later and re-shovels the teeny tiny path.

Here’s what the driveway looked like at 11.

By 2 pm, we had about 20 inches of snow.  Daddy and Mommy had both taken turns shoveling the driveway a couple more times, and finally decided that if we could just get the CR-V out of the garage, we were going to splurge at Lowe’s for a snow blower.  Not just any snow blower, no way.  We were going to get ourselves a big, fat monster, eat through anything snow blower.

4 pm, Daddy arrives with monster snowblower to finish the work in 30 minutes.  Nice.

So, overall, we had 4 hours of procrastinating about shoveling, 3+ hours of actual shoveling, and 30 minutes to do more than half the driveway with a snowblower.

Hooray for snowblower!

  1. Awesome! I’ve always wanted a snow blower but when we lived in Boston, it was too expensive for us and now we live too far south to need one. Which is also great but it always seemed like using a snow blower would be so much fun.
