My World Tuesday - Digging out

The snow started Friday morning about 10:30 AM and did not stop until Saturday afternoon leaving 18 to 24 inches in our neighborhood. Our neighbor across the street started shoveling before noon. I started shoveling around 1:30 PM and had cleared the walk and reached the van by 2:30.

I started shoveling around 1:30 PM and had cleared the walk and reached the van by 2:30.

Sunday afternoon was bright and sunny. To the east neighbors had machinery. One with a riding mower and snow blade was hard at work.

A large county plow arrived and cleared the intersection, then continued down the street past our house.

And another neighbor continued with his snow blower.

My shovel and I still worked our driveway (stopping often to take pictures).

The county plow came down the street. He would come back up the street later, followed by a second plow and they got a wave and thank you from me as they passed.

And at 5:30, we could leave if we wanted; however roads all around were still in bad shape, and it was nearing Super Bowl time.

I know the feeling - it has just started to snow again. We have had snow since a week before Christmas, which is extreme for these parts. Luckily for us it is less than you seem to have.
