What a storm. Maquoketa (where I work) got almost 20 inches. I’m not sure how much Dubuque got but I’m guessing at least 14 inches. I’m sure you all have images of the storm. This shot is out our back patio. The snow drift is above the grill. The puppies had no where to go. They were in a quandary.
This shot is from the garage looking down the drive way. There were 4 / 5 foot drifts on the driveway and the snow from the snow plow had put enough extra snow on the sidewalk so that it was above the top of the snow-blower.
I worked for two and a half hours on the driveway, sidewalk, and back patio. (The dogs were happy.) Now I know that I’m woefully out of shape but by the time I had finished wrestling with the snow-blower I felt like I had been in a hard fight and had lost.
Just getting the snow blower to the back yard proved to be a huge challenge. I knew I wasn’t up to shoveling that 5 foot drift so it was the snow blower or Mother Nature and I didn’t think the dogs could hold out for her.
So that was my Wednesday. I was fortunate enough to work from home. I believe they had a very small staff working and for the most part the town was shut down. I suspect the commute tomorrow will be a little slower than usual.
Thanks for stopping by. Be careful out there.
