Well we got an Alberta Clipper yesterday evening(yes that's what the weather network referred to it as) apparently it came from Northern Alberta. Anyway it was a full on blizzard the other night, perfect for all the people out and about for New Year's Eve. Thankfully I wasn't one of them, although our DD got invited out to a sleepover so we had to drive across town in almost 'white out' conditions at time, talk about insane. Anyway she got there safe and sound and we got back home to a warm house and I was happy to stay inside.
This is me blowing the snow on New Year's Day - my sister wanted pictures of me blowing snow, isn't she mean? I guess she must be so jealous living on the West Coast and not getting to do this lovely task.
So I got all bundled up and did the snow blowing for my DH(hey maybe this was all part of his evil plan) and 2 hours later the driveway and back yard were snow free. There were drifts up to 2ft and we don't have a huge blower so it took some doing and redoing to get it all clear.
Now it's time for a nice cuppa of hot tea and a back massage - yes even with snow blowers there is some lifting - the blower doesn't move itself around when it's time to turn around again.
