Good morning everybody. I'm trying to be cheerful. Sometime during the night, the snow finally stopped falling. We got several more inches of snow before it was finished. Now I just have to wait for the snow plow to get here later this morning to clear away last night's snow. He was here for the second time, late yesterday morning, and then Joe cleared the day's snow away in the afternoon.
Before going to bed last evening, Joe went out and shoveled all the snow that the town plows keep piling in front of our driveway. He was out there for a couple of hours. So you can imagine our frustration when the morning daylight shows another huge mountain of hardened snow blocking our driveway again. These town plows have no heart at all.
I took a couple of photos of our parking area to show the huge mounds of snow that surround the whole yard, and all the way to end of the driveway. Is it any wonder why we're getting tired of the snow?
Update on Kevin - Deanne and Kevin made it safely into Boston to the hospital yesterday, thanks to a wonderful family friend who drove them in and home again later. Deanne sent me this photo just before Kevin was taken in to surgery.
According to Deanne, the surgery went well, but did not show anything that might be causing Kevin's problems. However, they will go back in two weeks to hear what the doctor has to say after all the test results are in. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you Kevin. (even if it does make me look a bit odd when I walk!)
Getting back to the weather, other parts of the country are enjoying sunshine and warmer temps. Beth sent me this photo showing new leaves sprouting on a tree outside her home. I faded the background of the photo a bit so that the leaf area would show up better. Now if only she could send some of that Spring weather to us!
Well, now it's time to wake up one of the dwarfs so that he can get his car cleaned off before the snow plow gets here. So, till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a great day.
Hugs, Edna B.
