Lotz n Lotza sNOw
The Cape n MA south coast area got the forecast Blizzard last Saturday. For the second week in a row I had to skip sleep n go in extra early to ensure we would get there.
Sometimes it seems stupid to risk your life for bakery goods, n you wish you had an important job like being a surgeon to deserve going thru all the stress of the job we were expected to do in bad weather conditions. Who can afford an unpaid day, anyhow?
I went out 3 times to shovel the little dock to the dumpster. After adding up amounts moved I decided certainly it was a foot n a half or so. Luckily it was very cold out, (10 F), so very light n fluffy to move.
When the drivers started arriving about 8 pm, (we were almost done), I joked with them that they should get a medal either in "Bravery" or "Tom Foolery," n that they should consider becoming a Navy Seal after getting to work in that storm... as they reported almost zero visibility n only main roads plowed.
There were alot of silly snow-monoliths to observe out the main door.
I got home about 10:30 Saturday night. The storm went on until about Midnight.
Finally Tues n Weds it warmed up to about 50 F n the sidewalks were usable again! Yay because I would've had a tough time walking from the library.
I bought some $1 chicken drumsticks, went under the plastic to check plants, n the Thyme was still green n alive! Yay, will go good in the chicken soup.
Stay tuned for the upcoming, unusual, pre-scheduled second post of the week...
