Storm #2 today. Today's storm involved little shoveling for Miss Ryss...this time Randy the Snowblower came out of the basement like it should have, and made easy work of the snow and slop that fell. (I have to call it Randy the Snowblower. My sweet one is one with the snowblower, the one that mocks me when Randy's not home during storms. Which is most storms. And I can't get Snowblower out so there is no Ryssee the Snowblower).
All I had to do was clear snow off the car, shovel my escape route from my parking space on the street, and make a heap of French Toast for breakfast.
I would like to be brave enough to put a chair or a traffic cone in "my" street spot, like many people do in congested areas around Boston. It sucks to shovel it out only to lose it to a neighbor that didn't do anything but drive up the street. And then I have to park in a sloppy spot where no one cared about cleaning it out all nice and ever getting back into it.
The house continues to be our enemy. Many avalanches. but I refuse to deal with it this time!
Have wrapped 70% of the Christmas presents. My two 4-footed helpers were excused, many times, and have not torn through any wrapping as of yet.
I think I'm gonna get snow tires for Scion. It's actually pretty good in the snow with brand new tires but I think we're gonna get blasted many times this year, and my tires are tread-legal, but not great for another winter. We have purchased no winter-weather-battling apparatus this year, and I think that's what's contributed to the 2 feet of snow currently piled up on my garden. I think we are personally responsible for snow amounts in Somerville. This purchase could be my personal Community Service for our fair city.
