snowpacolypse - the day after

Church was cancelled today, again.
That's two weeks in a row. 
It now seems silly by comparision that last week we only had
six inches of snow, and church was cancelled.

I didn't make it to the potluck brunch this morning.
I didn't sleep well last night, and so at 0330 I cancelled my alarm for this morning.
I slept until I woke up on my own at 1130.
I love sleeping in.

Thankfully, I am not one of the 200K people without power or heat.
I am almost caught up with laundry as well.
Did I mention that I got a new washer!

The Hallmark Channel is showing 48 hours of I Love Lucy re-runs.
I think Lucy is the perfect antidote for the Superbowl.
Plus, I have the whole Jeeves and Wooster series on DVD, which was a Christmas gift from a friend.
Another perfect antidote for the Superbowl.

I did venture out to do some shovelling.
My back is in rebellion now.

As I was shoveling, this guy came down 19th Street.
He lifted the bucket to go through intersection.
I'm glad to finally see my un-represented tax dollars hard at work.

I think my car is a hopeless cause today.

Yep, it's hopeless.
I'm parked around the corner, and we haven't had a snow plow pass by there yet.
Lots of tire tracks from other cars, but no plows.
See my wind shield wipers poking up from the snow on the front window.
It keeps them from freezing to the window.

I have cleared a place to walk.
I even did part of the public sidewalk.
My back won't take any more this afternoon.

One of my neighbors borrowed my weapon of choice to clear their steps,
the back patio and do part of the sidewalk.
I might go out in a few more minutes to help out.
But in the meantime, I have a hot date with Lucy and my heating pad.

My friend T has been posting about the storm too.

Thanks for the shout out!

Your car looks as buried as mine. Sigh.

What a winter wonderland! It's beautiful, and you can enjoy it as long as you have what you need to be comfy and entertained! Did you really shovel all that snow with that little shovel? No wonder your back is hurting! LOL

Nice car. You need something a little higher off the ground with a little more clearance. When do you think you will be able to drive your bug squasher around the block next?
