Snow Saga ’14

Kevin and I have the same philosophy when it comes to snow removal during the winter. It will melt or there will be more of it. Shoveling is pretty much a waste of time, and with our Jeep it really hasn’t been an issue even on our sloped driveway. Until last night.

Because Kevin works second shift he doesn’t get home until late. Yesterday I was just so exhausted that I decided to go to bed early. I was snuggled into bed wrapped tightly under my favorite fuzzy blanket, when out of the blue my phone starts to ring. It was Kevin’s ring tone so immediately I bounced out of bed to answer it. He was stuck at the bottom of the driveway.

The REASON why he was stuck at the bottom of the driveway was pretty annoying, especially since it drug me out of bed into the cold. Our neighbors have decided that it’s a wonderful idea to park their cars in the street. Not really too much of a problem, except in the street happens to be directly behind our driveway. During the summer time when the roads are dry, and not filled with ice and snow? Not an issue. Now when we need a little extra momentum to get past the plow mountains? No. Horrible idea! So far we’ve managed to avoid hitting them, but the more snow and ice we get our chances of avoiding them are slimming.

Anyway, Kevin got stuck, and needed my help. I wander out there in the middle of the night hop in the Jeep and attempt to get enough power to rock over the mountain of snow left in our driveway by the plows. It took us about an hour, but we finally managed to get into the driveway.

I told Kevin we were lucky that he at least made it home before he got stuck lol. Ugh. Snow and I have become mortal enemies this winter. Today will be spent bundled and shoveling our snow mess out into he street. Lol. Until later Bloggies 🙂
