Before and After

Been a week since the Blizzard of 2016 passed over us (and others).  After the snow had fallen and the skies cleared,


That’s my car under that mound.



After 6  hours of back-breaking work.


And a week later,


There’s still work needed on the sidewalks, the walk at he immediate right of this picture which the neighborhood kids use to walk to the corner where the school bus picks them up.  The house to which this portion of the walk belongs to though is vacant, its owner I understand passed away about a year ago and it has sat vacant since (wonder if the insurance company who wrote the policy for that house knows that?).  Sure I could be a god civic mined person and clear it, but if there is one thing this storm has shown me, it is my physical limitations.  The last big snow we had was 6 years ago and while tiring I did handle it (helped too that son unit was still living with us) Just clearing off snow from my own property now proved to be very, very physically challenging. I’m just not up to tackling something extra.
