Ryan shoveled twice before midnight. He, Zac, and myself shoveled for three more hours today!
A snow storm brings a neighborhood together. Everyone was out this morning simply digging out. It is quite something to look down a smooth, serene, and completely white, winter wonderland only to see every driveway dotted with someone working hard. Then everyone reappeared around two this afternoon after the plow went by as we all then had five foot berms on our driveways. One neighbor, whose car was stuck, was shoveled out by Ryan and three other guys. Another neighbor's snow blower's belt broke and was helped out by a guy two doors down. Yet another neighbor offered to snowblow our driveway for us after the plow went by, which an aching Ryan and I readily accepted.
After the 'work' was done we sculpted our work and everyone had lots of fun! We may not have made it to church, our Christmas party may be cancelled, but it was a blast of a day!
Yup, that's our front yard! The hill is about six feet tall and alows for about a fifteen or so foot slide.
Now Ryan and I are off to find our imaginary hot tub! And add a snow blower to Ryan's Christmas list.
