I woke up early this morning, went through my regular routine... shower, hair, ironing (even packed an extra set of clothes... just in case) and really battled with myself about making the commute into work. I'll be the first to admit that I was scared to the point of tears (have I ever mentioned how much I hate driving in the snow??). I couldn't bring myself to drive through the mess. After getting stuck in Pownal last night until 8pm, when Brad and our dear friend Jamie were able to get to me to push me out, I was more hesitant than ever. In the end, I decided to put in for a vacation day... and trust me, there was nothing "fun" about it. When Brad and I finally made it home last night, we shoveled ourselves out. It took over an hour with both of us with shovels in hand. When I woke up this morning, it looked like we hadn't touched the driveway & our road still hadn't been plowed out...
This is a picture of Damon on our walkway (remember, we had shoveled this at 9pm last night):
We shoveled ourselves out again... and again... and again. It's 7:30 and the snow has finally stopped (for now). I decided after all of the hard work, Brad deserved a yummy treat...
Yum! Yum! Nothing beats banana and chocolate chip pancakes!!!
Unfortunately, Brad had to go into work tonight (of which he reports is a disaster up in Wilmington)... I have to give credit to all of the workers who are willing to drive in this. Jamie made driving up the mountain in a cruiser, that my Jeep couldn't get up last night, a breeze. I just don't know how these boys do it! I am officially ready for spring.
...and looking forward to our river looking like this again:
