Yeah ... good plan!
I was talking to my mom the other day about it (she loves snow!) and she told me she'd made a snow angel - regardless of how her neighbors would feel
seeing her acting like a kid...
She's so funny!!
Anyway, I told her I had not, but was reminded of sledding, tobogganing, skiing and tubing...and how fun it was. Later I went out to do my "shift" on
our 40-foot driveway, husband had done the first swipe - a wheel-wide path to the street. No city plow had come by (and didn't all day long).
While I was out there, a guy on an ATV with a plowblade rolled past my house. I was standing huffing and puffing and he glanced over and nodded
"hello" and I waved at him. A few minutes later, he came back ... gestured "you want help?" and I nodded. I asked what he charges, and he said,
"Whatever you think it was worth when I'm done." I stepped inside and told husband, who promptly dug $50 out of the household stash. The guy did the
rest of our driveway, and the street as far as two houses down!, making sure he wasn't leaving "rolls" behind the neighbors' already-shoveled
It was a Godsend. So I went back in and called my mom, and said, "Well, turns out I did
make a snow angel! He was on an ATV with a blade, and
arrived just in time!"
I like the way we roll in the neighborhood. We know our neighbors and we get out there and trade goods and services with each other. Excellent
