And they thought we didn't get snow anymore...

After a winter with hardly any snow, we sure are getting our fill of it this week.

After the 10-12 inches in my driveway (that doesn't count the bottom where the plows filled the bottom of it with 2 1/2 ft of snow) on Monday, it looks like we're in for another pretty good haul tomorrow.

See Apple Valley at the bottom of the map? I live next to that. That means another 8 inches to use my puny snowblower on.

I did however discover on Monday that I have the sweetest neighbor. After spending two hours trying to clean up the driveway and finishing just under half of it, I took a break to eat some lunch and rest up. I went back out a couple of hours later and was just getting the snowblower started back up when all of a sudden my neighbor comes up the driveway on the lawn tractor that has the snowblower attachement on the front of it. She had the rest of the driveway cleaned out in about 15 minutes, including all of that nasty wet snow the plow had left down at the bottom.

If I wasn't selling the house right now, I'd totally invest in one of those bad boys. If all I had to spend on the driveway was 20-30 minutes every time it snowed like that, it would pay for itself within 6 months.
