I just came in, my fingers are freezing, I need to warm them up before returning to the war zone. Snow, 5; Koerners, 1!
Despite all the help I had, I have one large job ahead of me. I finally managed to clear off the snow overhang in the front and then I unleashed one car from the snow. I then moved the car to a clean zone so I can more easily clean the snow between the house and fence. At this point, the snow must be lifted quite high to get it over the snowbanks.
Ali is having a great time. She insists on my throwing the snow in her face but it is particularly hard to as the snowbanks are so high. She is totally resistant to cold and snow and loves it. She was virtually swimming in it, as seen from the pics.
The boys are all out all over the place with snowblowers, plows, and shovels. We, the parents, are trying to “man the fort.” Other than removing the extraneous snow, our job is to provide warm food, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and the like. I am hoping that the battle we are having against Mother Nature will add more to the “family glue” by cementing our relationships. Life is far too short!
The snowfall seems to have let up some for the moment. It is time to get back out there, extricate both cars from their snowy prisons, and then clean up the aftermath. Wish me luck!
