It’s Snowing Again!

Okay – now I’m really getting tired of winter!  No, really!!!

When the last storm ended, my front yard looked like this.

Then I shoveled and shoveled – and managed to clear the porch in front of the front door, the sidewalk from the porch to the driveway, and a large part of the driveway. (I’m old, so I have to take it a little at a time.)  And I cleared all the snow and ice off the car.  I didn’t take a picture after I shoveled and cleared because I was going to wait until I was completely finished. Dumb – really dumb!

Now, it’s snowing again.  And all my hard work is disappearing under an unwelcome mantel of wet, yucky white. 

Look closely!  See!!  You can see where there used to be a path.  You can see it, can’t you?  Grrrrr!

On the bright side — okay, yes, I have to try to find a bright side — at least the wind isn’t blowing like it was before.  The snow is falling straight down — which, actually, is a very strange thing in Oklahoma – no wind, that is.

Oh – another bright side.  We had mail delivery today.  We haven’t had mail delivery since Monday.  Of course, the mail was bills.  Aaarrgghhh!!

I’m going to go fix me some dinner.  I hope I can find something yummy to fix.

      What a poignant thought! Most of our houses have fences around the back yards, but rarely do we even have a fence around the front yards. It always surprises me when I see a house with a fence around the front yard. I can’t imagine actual boundary walls around the houses. Wow. . .

    Your town sure does look pretty though 🙂

    Robert is in a power chair while I have to walk with a walker, and not much. He was out there clearing our walkways and drive, a few inches at a time. A 72 year old neighbor helped, non of the young strong neighbors.

    The way was open enough we could get out in case of an emergency. Well, scratch that now.
