Default Stupid snowplow!

Ok, I have to go to work pretty soon but I'm procrastinating. (I set my own hours and only "have" to be at work when I have something going on). My husband shoveled early this morning, and my son did a bit more. I'm almost ready to drag my lazy butt out the door, and here comes the freakin' snowplow! Now, I have to shovel the end of the driveway that is full of heavy wet snow. He is on his FIFTH pass.

Moral of Story: Go to work earlier on snowy days, so someone else has to shovel it.

I can feel your pain...at a previous apartment I had to park in an area off the side of the road and the plow would bury my car under a mountain of snow every time he ran through the neighborhood. I learned that after digging it out, move it immediately or be prepared to repeat the process.

Dang, you guys still have snow up there? It's like 70 degrees outside. I'm brewing in shorts and T-shirt.

Of course, I won't be dancing in the summer, when it hits 100 degrees, plus heat index.

Got 6 inches last night of very heavy wet snow. But, it's supposed to warm up by the end of the week. Come visit me in July- when it's 78 degrees up here. Everyone loves it here in the summer. But since summer is only three days, it's over quick. If Summer falls on a Saturday, we have a picnic.

Well I remember the freaking snowplows of my youth. I always loved the pictures of cars in the back of dump trucks. The front loaders would be clearing drifts and there would be "lumps".

Teach your husband to shovel like I do. First thing I do is go out and shovel the ROAD in front of, and just down from my driveway. That way when the snowplow comes by you've already cleared away the snow that the plow would have pushed into your driveway. I beat the plow by about 5 minutes this Saturday and spared myself having to clear the wet crap from the end of my driveway. I hate piles of snow at the end of the driveway and do what I can to prevent them

You guys should consider yourselves lucky! We just got nailed over the weekend and I was lucky to see a plow go by once in 36+ hours! And I live in town too!

Makes me wonder what I pay my taxes for?

Hahaha, that sounds just like our three day winter. If the temperature gets into the 30s, it's a citywide crisis.

Yep, summer in WI/UP is 3 days of bad sledding. One of my favorite jokes.
