Here we are just after getting the back gate open to go around to the front of the house.
Farm Boy...lookin mighty fine
holdin that shovel...if I do say so myself!
And me ready to shovel...sad thing is...my feet
weren't completely touching the ground
and the snow is up to my thigh.
And this is our path out to the street.
YES I got snow in my boots and NO I was not happy about it!
I needed wader's people! It was ridiculous!
Farm Boy had to kick his feet around a little so I could get through it.
So we made it around to the front of the house and dug out the front door. Then we made a little path so we could get at least half way to the cars. Not sure why cause there was NO getting them out of the snow. But we did it anyway and it made today's work a little easier.
This is me yesterday after part of
the path had been cleared from the front door.
This is one of our Magnolia trees yesterday.
And this is some of the cars in our neighborhood yesterday.
I promise...there are cars under there!
And this is Q-Tip playing in the tupperware drawer.
I know it isn't snow related but this was her big
accomplishment for the day.
So that brings us to today. No nap...once again. I do have to admit that Farm Boy let me sleep in...bless his sweet soul. The sun did show its lovely face which didn't really help matters because the temperature didn't make it above 29 degrees but I'm not complaining. It was nice to see the sun and I can handle the frigid temps when I'm wearing my Carhartts. However, no Carhartts = no Megan outside in the cold!
We waited for Q-Tip to take her marathon nap and went out to face the music. We had every intention of digging both trucks out but alas...our efforts went futile...partly. We did get a nice little path out to the sidewalk and half of Farm Boy's truck out. Y'all...it took us two hours to do it! TWO BLESSED HOURS! And let me just tell ya, I was sweating bullets and was half way stripped out of my Carhartts by the time Q-Tip woke up. We were shoveling our little hineys off.
This is the front of Farm Boy's truck and the next one is the front of my truck. You can see the tips of the windshield wipers sticking up through the snow. We learned a nifty trick out here...if you flip them up they don't freeze to the windshield. HA...who'd of thunk it!
And here is the proof that we shoveled our hineys off today.
Doesn't look like much I know. But it was HARD y'all....HARD!
We still have more to go which means...we will be shoveling AGAIN tomorrow. I threatened to not speak to Farm Boy until he bought a snow blower...it's really pointless to threaten that though cause it would never last. I wouldn't be able to not talk to him for more than 30 minutes and he knows it. So I guess I'm stuck with the dam...darn shovel.
Farm Boy doesn't have to go in to work tomorrow thank heavens. He does have to work from home but I'm glad he is here. Although, it is bittersweet. This was a busy week for him so since he is staying home tomorrow (who knows how many more days) he will have to work late for the rest of the week and possibly the weekend which REALLY sucks. But we'll make it through it.
Here is one last picture of our darling Q-Tip.
This one ought to give you a warm fuzzy feeling!
What will tomorrow bring...who the heck knows!
But I do know...IT'S SUPPOSED TO SNOW ON TUESDAY!
NO I'm not kidding! Would I kid about more SNOW? I think NOT!
P.S. Just to be clear...Farm Boy shovels WAY faster than I do so really he did most of the work. But I did put my two cents in which I don't mind doing in any situation. As I'm sure you have guessed by now.
