I wasn't designed for winter.  I think I should be somewhere tropical, with sunshine and lollipops and rainbows.  Instead I'm in Frozenland.  

We didn't get as much snow as some but it was followed by rain and then naturally it froze.  This morning was like trying to shovel bricks.  I shoveled for awhile and then I got fed up.  The snow plow had filled in the end of my driveway like a wall of concrete.  I was annoyed and tired so I just jumped in the car, floored the gas petal and plowed through.  I almost got fetched up on the edge but I made it.  Getting back in at noon was more of a challenge.  I shoveled again - Round 2.  

Then after supper the friggin sidewalk plow went by and yes, you guessed it......filled in the end AGAIN!
I shoveled again - Round 3.   I figured it was good enough that I could charge through it again.   After round 3, I decided I needed a few treats so I went to the store.  And when I got home saw the MOST BEAUTIFUL SIGHT EVER

One of my neighbors was clearing out the ice in front of the driveway with a small tractor.  Yay!!  I can drive straight out now.  I was so happy I could have kissed him.  (I didn't, just in case you're wondering)


  1. Hang in there! Thank goodness for nice neighbors ,hugs cheri

  2. I am so glad you have a good neighbor! I hope he keeps it up all winter.
    I hope it warms up just a bit. Have a nice evening, tomorrow is Friday!

  3. It is the little niceties in life that make us so happy.

  4. What a nice neighbor! I wish we could trade places (for the snow not the neighbor lol )....i'm not in the tropics but it hardly snows and we have sunshine humidity and rainbows, no lollipops though :)

    Doing a happy dance for you. Take care, Janet W ((hugs))

  5. How neighborly!! That was very nice of them.

  6. I love that!!!! Hang in there! Sometimes it pays to wait ;)

  7. How great of the neighbor, well worth a kiss I think.Blessings Francine

  8. Wonderful to have a thoughtful neighbor. I have always loved snow but the older I get the harder it is to deal with it.

  9. There is no better sight than a man on a tractor when you are shoveling....

  10. I'm glad the man on the tractor came to your rescue. That snow was heavy.
    We got hit hard by the storm too and lost our power and even the internet and we just got back power at noon today. It was like living in an icebox.
    I was so cold without my new stove. That was cancelled too because of the storm.


  11. I'm glad you have a nice neighbor! I wouldn't mind Winter half as much if it would just wait until it actually WAS WINTER!! Sheesh...lets let Fall have it's day..or month or 3! Stay safe and warm and enjoy your weekend!

  12. I wasn't designed for winter, either. Maybe we can run away???
    Sidewalk plows? Don't let the people in my city hear about those. We'd be in a world of hurt.
    I'm happy to hear you have such a good neighbor.
    Hugs :)

  13. I wasn't designed for winter either! We have had a couple of snowfalls the past few days and I'm tired of it already. So great that your neighbor cleared the end of your driveway - those are the best neighbors to have!

  14. I never thought about the fact that the snow plows blocked people's driveways. That is very uncool. Thankful for the kindness of neighbors though, eh?
