We both went out to move the snow even though it was still snowing but we needed to move it so the mail man can get to the mailbox.
I went out with my scoop but the snow was so wet I could not budge it.
I had to shovel it. There was a big drift between the garage and the house and there is just no way to use the blower. We know there have been a lot of rocks disturbed and there are windows in the house and the garage which could be broken by a rock thrown from the blower.
I had to shovel the area and it took a long time I did not want to lift too much snow since it was so heavy. I kept telling myself my ST was paying off since my arms just threw it easily to one side.
Once that area is done the big driveway is usually easier but today the sun shone on it and it had too much water in it. We know enough to never leave the driveway with snow on the tar because ice is even worse to move and the mail man would not be able to get to the house.
We worked together till 11:30 am and I realized I needed to eat. We both went in to the house and the sun was actually drying the surface of the driveway. As I looked out I noticed how much snow had drifted off the roof so I went back out and used the roof rake to get it down and then I shoveled it away.
I had already made myself a salad and DH had made coffee so lunch was easy.
We had an appointment to get taxes done at 3:00 pm and since DH always keeps good records we were done by 4:00 pm. We stopped at the library for some videos and went for the prescription we had to pick up.
Once we were home neither of felt hungry so we watched the first video and ate a late supper. Beef stew and DH had his chocolate bananas. I ate an apple.
I started to Spark quite late so nothing else was done by me, DH did the dishes and now we are off to bed.
We are both hoping the storm for tomorrow has gone out to sea, I sure hope so and I think DH will not be as eager to get out and play in the snow after today.
Tomorrow is our Youngest sons birthday so we are hoping to Skype to Las Vegas.
