We thought we were going to escape the snow from the Nor’easter as there had just been rain, rain and more rain. Then yesterday afternoon it turned to heavy wet snow.
Normally I go to the gym early Thursday morning, but I figured because of the weather that exercise would consist of shoveling and I was correct on that.
The heavy snow sticks to the branches and looks beautiful, but it sure plays havoc with the power lines. Luckily we didn’t lose power. We got our driveway cleared of the heavy wet stuff and then in the mid afternoon we went over to our old house to shovel all that. Ugh! That was such a slog. There was a layer of icy slush under all the snow. Good thing I do lifting or I doubt I could have done the driveway. Funny because today’s lifting workout would have been upper body anyway 😀 My old garden:
Seriously – it is only December 11th and we have this much snow already?
It is a little disheartening that this house isn’t selling. There just is hardly any activity in the market right now. Since our house went on the market in late August, less than 10 houses have sold in this town and they were a mix of multifamily or junkers and one higher end house – so nothing really comparable to our house. It’s just really slow right now. We figure we probably won’t sell until at least the spring. That’s a bit of stress carrying 2 houses. That whole stupid delay with the closing and we missed the prime time to have our house on the market. Gah. Oh well, not much can be done about that.
I won the football picks this week and finally got to go to Rockhill Bakery! We worked up an appetite with probably 1-1/2 hours of shoveling done today between the 2 houses. I had a Grandpa Smith sandwich, which is local ham, cheese, granny smith apples and honey mustard on toasted cinnamon raisin bread.
With a bag of chips!
All this time spent on shoveling and I will pull something from the Laziest Cat in the World files:
That board is a piece of MDF I got to put over the radiator. The plan is to paint it white and I will be putting my Charming Tails figurine christmas town and parade on it. Only someone decided she liked how warm the board was and has been sleeping on it since I put it there. She was on the board from about noon until 8 pm today. I want to come back in another life as Pixie.
