The Big Dig


Honestly, designing new borders is the last thing on my mind post-blizzard of December '09.  Anyone with hopes of driving anywhere this week is spending today digging out their cars, like this one parked across the street from my house.  I think we'd all kill for a snow-thrower at this point.

When I read a Facebook update from a friend declaring that pre-blizzard, she'd simply parked her car in a nearby covered parking garage, I marveled at her ingenuity and experienced the whiniest stabs of jealousy toward anyone living close enough to a parking garage to do that.  The joys of city living indeed.

I can't really complain, though.  While I was having dinner at one neighbor's house last night another neighbor was out clearing my sidewalk in the dark, and doing an excellent job of it.  This is the neighbor who serves in Congress, by the way, doing a good deed that can't possibly help him politically.

  1. That’s a lot of snow, no matter how much snow you are used to getting in the winter. And if it makes you feel any better, a snow blower or snow thrower would have to be pretty big to handle that much snow. But the good news is, snow melts, eventually. Oh wait, that might be the bad news as all that water has to go somewhere!

    Putting your car in the parking garage is soooo smart!

    I live in the city and my neighbor and I take turns shoveling each other’s sidewalk out front when it snows. You have a nice neighbor!

    Every little bit of public ass kissing helps. Too bad congress can’t shovel there way out of other things.

    i would certainly not kill anyone for such a silly reason 😉

  6. Wow, you’ve really had some snow there! Makes our six inches look quite sad!!

  7. I’ll double Elizabeth’s Ha ha ha!! In buffalo, we can still see the grass. It’s all dead, but we can see it.

    If I were your neighbor, I’d shovel for you.
