What a difference a week makes! A week ago, the snow was falling in little bitty flakes. The lil flakes didn't look like much, but they kept it up until Saturday night! On Sunday, nothing was moving--no Metro above ground, no Metro buses, not even enough sidewalk shoveled so we could walk. Monday was a bit of a spell in the storm, but ha...Monday night, the snow started again and fell that night and all day Tuesday until 10 pm. Same little flakes, but we got 12" in the first storm, and 10" in the last one. I had to pay $50 to get the driveway shoveled so I could get out of the house (and that doesn't count the $15 I forked over to the little neighbor kids who mostly played with the dog since they had only one shovel, and the snow was HEAVY....).
Anyway, today the sky is bright blue and sunny, and the streets in Mt. R have been cleaned miraculously. (well, two of them have...RI ave is dry pavement from side to side, and 37th St has had a good swipe taken out of the middle so people can drive.
One problem is that the snowshovel has disappeared from INSIDE the house. Probably the landlady has hauled it away to work on her place in DC. I am not really gung ho on shoveling, but I do enjoy a bit of it....and after 23" of snow, there are still lots of places that could be cleared better. like the path to the trash cans, the back patio, etc. I like getting out into the cold, clean air and hearing the hungry ROBINS singing from the trees around me. The neighbor lady, whose name is Robin, feeds them bread chunks, and they flock to her little front yard tree, singing their heads off.
I am hoping I can get a photo, but so far, not.....
