We had a huge snow storm yesterday!
It was so bad that it knocked out my internet AND cable connections at about 5:30 pm yesterday afternoon. Thunder, snow and Ice … that’s what yesterday was all about!
We had well over a foot of snow and got some freezing rain too.
I actually wrote the bulk of this post yesterday in notepad while I was waiting for the internet and cable to come back on. This is what I was thinking about:
I should go out and shovel. I really should. The only problem is that I’m feeling just terrible and I’ve got yet another fever. I’m afraid that if I bundle up to go outside and start pushing the snow around I’ll feel even worse.
You’d think that maybe, just this one time our neighbors would have at least shoveled the snow from the sidewalk in front of our house? Chris does most of the snow shoveling for our house. I used to do my fair share but when I’m sick I just can’t.
When Chris gets out and shovels he always does our two elderly neighbors sidewalks and the walkway leading up to the front of their house. He also often does the sidewalk in front of the house that is attached to our own. That means he shovels from the corner and the fronts walks and sidewalks of four or five houses! He does this almost every time he shovels.
I looked outside and two of the neighbors have shoveled but they didn’t do our sidewalk or my stalker elderly neighbor Sofie’s sidewalk.
Darn … I think I just talked myself into shoveling. I can’t leave it that way. I guess I’ll go bundle up and see how far I get. I am most definitely not shoveling for the neighbors who already did some of their own shoveling … the ones that we often shovel for normally.
So yes, I did end up going out to shovel. Darn neighbors! Five years of helping people out and when I can’t get out to do it because I’m sick and my husbands at work they don’t bother. I’m tired of being nice and getting walked on. No more!
Our internet and cable returned about four hours after it had gone out. What a frustrating day it was.
