Our share of the snow has quit and moved east. Now we face sub-zero temps at night. I piled snow against the crawl space entrance and all the [closed] foundation vents. That just about takes care of any chance of the water pipes freezing. One benefit of cycling was that I was able to keep the driveway cleared off while the snow was coming. I had no health-type problem during all that shoveling and did the final touches this morning after breakfast. I feel I did as good a job as Jan.
We have not had the chance to make a snow mound-igloo for years. I will see what I can do with it.
Now for a rant: I see where McDonald’s can get their parking lot cleared down to the pavement, but Oak Grove Ave. has not seen hide nor hair of a snow blade. Perhaps later.
