After I was about 3/4 done digging myself and my car out this morning a gentleman stopped and finished scooping around my car so I could move it across the street (where they've already run the maintainers). I offered to pay him. He wouldn't take it - I thanked him and told him he was my "angel" today! He said he was happy to help me and, "just pass it on" which, of course, I will ... I pay it forward whenever the opportunity allows me. Whoever you were ... thank you so, so much! At the time, he did tell me his name, but I forgot it by the time I got finished and went back inside.
The sun's out and where things have been scooped we're getting a melt off - which will, of course, turn to ice overnight! The aftermath is always challenging for a few days (or weeks). And another front is headed this way on Sunday, with possibility of a few more inches on top of what we will have still lingering around by then ... oh, goodie! Oh, how I long for my desert life ... or to at least live where I don't have to be responsible for clearing walks like I do now.
