Last night hubby took the dog for his late night walk around 11pm. He said that it was snowing very heavily but was not too deep. Around 5 am I woke to the sound of snow falling off our metal roof. When I woke I could not see out my bedroom windows because their view was obstructed with fallen snow. I could not open either the front or the back door. I was relieved to have electricity. I could not; however, find the car buried under the snow.
Hubby went out at 8:30 to plow our drive, the road in front of our property and our neighbor's drive. It took him 3 hours to plow our drive because he got stuck 4 times. 2 hours for our neighbor's drive, stuck twice. Another neighbor helped my husband to dig the plow truck out of the drive with out success. And the job is not done yet. We are waiting to hear from a friend and whether he can pull the truck out with his tractor.
In the meantime, the rest of the snow falls off the roof obstructing the entire view of our living room window. This snow has to be shoveled because there is a vent for the monitor heater there. If we don't clean it out then ,when the snow melts, we will have too much water in the house. To get to this side of the house the snow shoes need to be donned. Even then I sink up to my knees in the stuff.
But, Hubby and I have to tag team this job today because Teen is in Bangor visiting his dad and the wee one has a terrible cold and a temp of 101.1.
Ahhh winter.... how many days til' Spring?
