After two hours of shoveling, the walks are cleared.
We were ready but neither newspapers nor mail were delivered Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. We had lots of reading time, computer time and cleaning time. After suddenly taking 5 days out of our lives for Bob's brother's funeral and leaving a mess behind us, we needed to do a major cleaning--and we had plenty of forced time.
We are at the end of the alley so if we don't clear our section to the street, everyone else's cars are held captive. The photo below is of Bob shoveling the drive and alley.
Actually most offices and all schools were closed and most people had enough warning to stock up on food and gas so problems were minimal. One neighbor actually bought a snow-blower before the storm hit so he was the envy of the neighborhood.
I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted. Things just seemed to get in the way of our plans. When we returned from Spain we began to tie up loose ends with our basement project: installing new flooring, painting the walls and sorting through years of accumulation to toss the non-functioning and unusable. We finished that just in time to welcome company from Germany, Brazil, and New Mexico.
More recently we kept our granddaughter Clio for 3 days while her parents went to a wedding in New York. We loved every minute but long sessions at the computer posting and reading just didn't happen.
Hopefully in the new year I will have more time to take photos and write, two things I have missed greatly in the last six weeks.
