Let's talk about snow. That kind of feels like a bad 4 letter word right now doesn't it? I woke up this morning to find that the Doc, in his rush to get to work bright and early this morning, decided to just drive over the snow that was in our driveway and leave perfect smooshed tire tracks from the garage to the street. That meant that this morning, while trying to feed and dress 4 children before the start of school, I got to go shovel the driveway and chip off his perfect tire tracks that had frozen to the driveway. (Don't worry, he got a super nice thank you text for leaving me the nice present!)
Tonight during this beautiful snowfall we are having, after putting 4 crazy kids to bed, I busted out the snow blower to try to avoid the tire track incident from this morning being repeated tomorrow morning. All I have to say is, thank goodness for snow blowers! They make cleaning up the driveway so much easier. Just make sure you always wear proper shoes. Lets just say snow blowing the driveway in my running shoes last winter didn't go so well. I ended up almost flipping the snow blower over on myself when I slipped going up the driveway. Oops.
Now tell me I'm not the only Resident's wife who spends more time clearing out the snow than your Doc during the winter! Stay warm and safe out there.
