I wrote this after I read another sparkers blog about being snowed in and it brought back this memory I shared with her. Now I will share it with you too.
Mt friend said she loved the snow even when it was very deep in her area today.
Most days I love it too. We came from England and there was not much snow there, more rain than here for sure.
Our first year here I was pregnant, we had a few feet of snow and our picture window was almost covered by a snow drift. The neighbor called on the phone and asked if we could see out of the window. I said no there is a drift there, she informed me it was not a drift it was mostly that deep everywhere. I had a major melt down panic attack, poor DH handled it well. He reassured me he would get me to the hospital if needed. He called around asking about ambulance service.
That was when we discovered there was NO AMBULANCE SERVICE IN AUGUSTA MAINE--OOPS!!
We were told when he asked the question, “Where do we call for an ambulance if I need to take my wife to the hospital she is pregnant.”
"You have to call the funeral home for ambulance service"- when he told me that I almost needed the Hearse instead.
Within a couple of years the city had ambulance service and neither one of us needed to ride in the hearse.
After almost 50 years here, I am used to the snow and like my friend I can find the beauty and serenity in every flake and every deep snow fall. I don't even mind clearing it when it's light and fluffy. HUGS Pat in Maine.
