We've got about 6-8 inches of snow and it's still coming down. AND. There's another storm with 70 mph wind on the way. New Englanders are such frikken nuts about snow! We tried to do a little shoveling and nearly gave ourselves heart attacks doing it. Really a heavy, wet snow. Of course we prepped ourselves by having a nice big egg and bacon breakfast.
At just the heart attack moment, two girls across the street sauntered over with shovels. I pulled out a $20. And those two 12 year olds had our whole driveway shoveled out in under 15 minutes.
God bless 'em.
The Girl and I decided that our Christmas present this year will be a snowblower.
Hands down. Couldn't be happier.
Then of course we hopped in the Mini and went shopping. The Girl is THE BEST driver in the snow. She can seriously handle it. She was plowing snow with the Mini and skidding out and just HANDLED IT.
Love her. Love love love her.
