Yesterday's deluge of snow left us with a legacy of a 17hr power cut and rather a lot of effort required to dig all of the cars out of driveways or out of their abandoned positions in the street (some of my neighbours had come home late last night and couldn't get their cars all the way home).
In the last three years we have had some very heavy snowfalls, but this one was the most snow I have seen since we lived here. This morning we cleared our back steps, but instead of stepping down off the bottom step on to the driveway, you now have to step back UP off the bottom step onto the snow level!!! Crazy.
Early Saturday morning brought a flurry of more snow and of neighbours with shovels clearing a way out of our development and out of individual driveways - just the kind of hard work that leaves you gasping for a great cup of tea - if there was electricity!! Or, if your hubby is an outdoor fanatic and has a handy dandy gas stove!
Job done. Now we're all just hoping for no more snow!!
And, since there was no electricity to set my sewing machine a-whirring, I positioned myself in front of the fire with all those paper pieces I showed you yesterday and got basting! Electricity came back on just in time for me to have to make dinner instead of sending hubby out for a takeaway - typical!!
If you've had snow, I hope you are safe and warm or enjoying the snowmen and snowballs!!
