Snowed In!

Winter has arrived with a vengance! Last week we had no snow and this morning woke up to this:



A backhoe with a blade came and did one pass down our road then left! We are now left with these enormous drifts in front of our houses. Guess we aren't going anywhere today! Or for a few days!

You can't see it in the pictures but our neighbor 2 houses down has an Accura that is completely buried except for a little bit of the roof poking out! That is his black truck that is also almost buried!

Also, if you notice, there are a few houses that have begun to lose chunks of shingling from their roof. These houses are the ones that JUST had the shigles re-done after our insane hail storm this August.
When we bought this house we were so thrilled with the wide open space, the views and the privacy. We didn't take into account that in the winter months we would basically be the windbreak for the whole street! Also doesn't help that our house is one of the taller ones on the street as well.

Gotta "love" the plows huh? That's what happened to us last year..we were almost able to get out of the driveway went the damn grater came by and blocked us back in. I've been watching cars get stuck on my street all day, it's sort of amusing :)

You are just as snowed in as I am... there is a huge drift across my driveway. Hope the grader comes by tonight or tomorrow morning AND that he remembers to come into my yard and clean up my driveway.
