This is pretty ironic, considering I live in Wisconsin, the land of outdoor winter fun.
So far this winter, we had managed to out run Old Man Winter. Our snow totals were pretty minimal.
I was happy.
Then this past weekend, Snowmageddon 2015 arrived.
It started Saturday night, snowed all day Sunday, and ended in the wee hours of Monday morning. All in all, we totaled about 14 inches of the powdery stuff. While this may not seem like a lot to some of you, to me it might as well have been 14 feet.
Apparently the snow plow drivers didn't get the message that they needed to get to work (or they were too busy watching the Super Bowl) because there was not one plow that went down my street between Saturday night and when I left for school on Monday morning. Not one...
The drive to school on Monday morning was very interesting, but I made it. My own children had the day off of school on account of the weather, but not me. We had to call the neighbor (who had a snow plowing business) to come and plow out our driveway because our tractor with the plow broke. (Of course it did!) Then my neighbor was kind enough to plow our road so we could all get out. He definitely wins the Good Neighbor Award!
Winter is beautiful, but I just wish it wasn't so....wintery.
