What else...SNOW !!
You can see our area got bombarded with snow yesterday and last night.
I did get to work at 8am [yes my DH got the driveway plowed out so I could get to work on time]. When I got there the power was out in the area so I waited in the shop and decided to go to McD's for coffee. Apparently a snowplow hit a hydro pole and knocked out a transformer. After 3 hours we headed home. It was snowing so hard it took me 45 min.[ 20 min drive]. I stopped for milk and made it home safe and sound.
Today was a very interesting day. I don't normally clean snow, Terry has a truck with a plow and a snowblower.
Today the truck got stuck in the driveway [4x4] Yup stuck. We worked on it for an hour and then I said I think we should call CAA. I did and he was here in about 1 1/2 hrs. Not bad.
Next the Snowblower blew a belt so while waiting for the tow the belt got replaced.
In the mean time I cleaned a bit of the front sidewalk for emergency purposes I might have been the emergency...I was VERY careful for those of you that know I have angina. I'm fine!
The pictures tell the tale. That is not the sidewalk I cleaned!
I wonder if the dogs realize that the fence is only 1 foot from the top of the snow. They could almost step over it...lol . Fortunately they are heavy and push the snow down. That is a 4 ft fence.
I did stitch on MG last night so I showed that as well!
I hope you all stay warm and and those of you that are in a warm climate...stay there. We have more to come.
It is March Break in Ontario.
So I imagine the kids are happy with this to ski and play in the snow.
Stitch with happy fingers!
