We woke up to a ton of snow. We weren't really surprised, since we were warned in plenty of time. And, we were armed with the proper tools. Most New Yorkers have at least some if not all of these "winter tools."
A tractor, a roof rake, a ladder and a shovel.
We were prepared, so there was really snow use crying about it! (get it?)
While I was out taking pics, Princess Der was on the roof shoveling. She had gone to the other side of the house, so missed being a star on my blog today.
Golden Child helped me shovel my way down to the boy's goat house. All the goats were freaking out.........they think everytime they see someone, they should eat. Of course, it was their feeding time.
Ron went to start the tractor and found it out of gas- weird....I think a couple of young boys needed gas for the truck...but that's just my guess.........
Ron's van was snowed in, as was my car. We had to call some friend's, Mr & Mrs Rollback (don't ask where Ron get's these nic-names!) to come take Ron to the store for gas.
Mrs. Roll back decided to help me feed goats. She was wearing sweat pants and sneakers. She had fun walking out to the girls goathouse!
But then again, here in NY, the majority of people wear only a sweatshirt and sneakers in this weather! Who needs a coat and boots? I have a winter coat I've worn maybe 2 x's. I keep it in my car in case I break down.
Ron finally got the tractor going and did the driveway.
He took a coffee break and when he went back out to push all the snow back furthur, the tractor wouldn't start. So, he headed for Uncle Eddie's (another friend) to get a spark tester (?) or something. Came back, the tractor started......weird!
While he was gone, I grabbed another tool necessary for our brutal NY winters....
To fix the mailbox the plow driver hit AGAIN!
Golden Child and I had a good laugh......we were joking around saying how they probably hit stuff on purpose just for the fun of it............
Think about it:
Charlie: "Hey Hank, 15 points if you can hit that there speed limit sign up ahead. An extra 5 if you make it look like an accident"
Hank: "Hell Charlie, I'll wipe out that mailbox, too!"
Charlie: "You always were a dare devil, Hank" as he grabs the OH S*%T strap ( as my daddy used to call it) and hangs on for dear life!
Note to Hank and Charlie: You will not defeat me....I will keep on fixing the mailbox...............
Right after we got everything cleared, it started raining- that lasted about 1/2 hr, now it's snowing like a son of a gun.........
