Two pics. One shows my progress at this point digging out the driveway. Once that’s done, ironically, I can then drive to the repair shop and pick up the snow blower, which is fixed now. I know others have it worse so I only note this for the sake of the humor.
The other pic is a happy Bondi (“bawn-dye”)coming back from a successful “outside” trip. He’s jogging the best he can back up the snow furrow he made himself.
That’s a good dump. Did you have much snow on the ground before the blizzard hit? Hope it’s not too wet, shoveling wet snow is brutal.
It is very soft dry snow. Easy to shovel. I had it easy. There was some snow on the ground already but not in the driveway. I busted a belt in the snow blower on Friday, so up to that point, I was on top of it. The problem, really, is that the town snow plows always create a huge ridge at the end of the driveway. That’s the hard part. I am in a cul de sac and they decided that Point Terminus for plowing back here is to block my driveway, with extreme prejudice.
Totally agree with that map, especially over the last 7 days…
Last Wednesday, I left my house at the normal 5:30AM to get up to Beverly by 9. We had snow the day before, but it had turned to rain overnight and was 35F when I left. Once I got north of Hartford, the temp was dipping from 33 to 31F. Then, I hit the first rest area on the Mass Pike, and everything except for the blacktop was coated in ice. Caused me to start listening to AM Boston radio, and then I heard about the 33 car pile-up in Wakefield, and then the 55 care pile-up in Lynnfield, and then traffic on I-90 came to a halt. There was a tractor trailer across the road. It took me over an hour to get from Exit 10 to Exit 10A. I turned around and went home; 5 hrs to get from home, to Exit 10A to home again.
Then the blizzard hit the next day. And then, snow, rain, ice snow on Sunday.
BTW, very nice looking dog, looks a lot to me like an Australian Shepherd. Are they related?
