We spent over 2 hours shoveling and snow blowing. Once Al had our driveway and sidewalks cleared, he started on the neighbor's driveway and some of the road in front. A plow had come through sometime, but it only went one way down the street--south, so that all the snow piled up on our side of the street. Even with a clear driveway, we wouldn't have been able to get out, so he had to plow the street, too. Later that night, our neighbor came over and thanked Al for helping out his boys with the driveway. They were impressed with the snow blower. You know, we laughed at oursleves for buying such a big one, but boy, are we glad did. We are the envy of the neighborhood!
Al went back to work today. It took him over an hour to get there, and it normally takes 30 minutes. He said there were lots of cars on the side of the road and that the roads are still pretty bad. We might get another inch this afternoon, but sun and warmer temperatures by this weekend. Then flooding and mud and all that fun stuff. Aaaahhhhh, winter in the midwest.
Here are few pics for ya:
A cleared driveway, but where do put any more snow?
Al snow blowin' the sidewalk. Aaaahhhh, the joys of being on a corner lot:
That's the street just to the left of the sidewalk:
There's a sidewalk in there somewhere:
And we didn't even get the worst of it! Other states are getting double what we got, not to mention the poor people in Alabama who had their lives destroyed by tornadoes. We got off lucky compared to all of them.
OK all you bookworms and bookworm-wannabes (you know you wanna be one), here's a quiz for ya. Thanks Michelle for having this quiz on her blog so that I could take it too.

For some reason, it doesn't look like the red bars showing the categories I was highest in has come thorugh.The results weren't too surprising, though. The first three categories had long red bars, but nothing on the last two.
