We were about due for another round of snow. The inch or two of 3 week old snow was starting to get a little gross looking especially in our dogs' favorite parts of the yard, if you know what I mean. So yes, a little bit of snow to cover the more yellow areas was welcomed but the 8+ inches of blowing snow was a little more than we were hoping for. The Gardener plowed the driveway twice before he left for work but you wouldn't know it now. I had big plans to bundle up tonight and hop on the tractor to clear the driveway but after I walked through the waist deep snow drifts to get out to the shed I decided that I would just make it worse if I tried to move the snow. Wouldn't want to get banned from snow removal for a second year in a row.
I haven't used the oldnew tractor yet and the plow only works in reverse. Can you really picture little old me on a big 'ol tractor PLOWING BACKWARD with a strong north wind? I think not! Instead I'm waiting up for the Gardener, hoping that he'll be able to get his work van into the driveway, not that we have to shovel out the end of the driveway at midnight.
Update : The Gardener just made it home and said it was the second worst weather he's ever driven in. At least he's home!
Oliver sure does like this weather though, almost like he was meant for the snow or something. Weird huh?
