So does anyone else have a three foot high snow drift blocking their entire driveway? It's only 11 inches deep on our back porch. I have never seen anything like this!
At 5:15ish this morning I was getting ready to go to Curves when Tim came and told me I wasn't going anywhere. I thought he was maybe being over-protective and cautious, when he showed me what was happening in front of our house. Some poor sap in a rear-wheel drive truck was seriously stuck in about two feet of snow in the middle of our circle. Since I was already dressed to leave, I went out to help him, not realizing what I would find when I opened my garage door. There was about a 9 inch drift against the door! I grabbed the shovel and started to make a path. About a foot away from the door there was hardly any snow to speak of, and then came what I can best describe as a sandbar-like snow drift. It ran across the driveway and wrapped around the whole front of the house! I kept digging and digging and finally I made it to the road.
The driver looked at me like I was crazy and at first was a bit leary of accepting help from a girl (machismo) but he didn't have much choice. He was on the phone telling a friend to come get him and to "trae una pala, por favor." Good thing I speak Spanish! I told him there was another pala by my garage door and he tromped back to get it while I started to dig. (Spanish word of the day, 'pala' means shovel) I told him I don't remember seeing anything like this in my life, living here the whole time. I should have warned- 'Go back to Mexico while you can still get out! It's much warmer!!!'
Tim and I worked on our driveway for a while and got it to where he could use the snow blower on the rest- Thanks honey! (and for the beautiful roses, too)
Anyway, after Jenna's class party today, I will work on putting some of my snow pics on here. Crazy!
