I never got you told about what happened on Wednesday. It's been freezing cold and it has been blowing a gale force wind, which means it blows over the driveway and blocks us in. Due to it being so cold it has turned the snow rock hard and made it feel like ice.
As my right arm had been giving me a lot of problems, dh told me to leave the snow blowing until he came home. Well by the time he got home it was even worse, so bad he got the truck stuck halfway up the driveway. So I went out with him, as there was at least a two foot high drift in front of the garage door, which we had to dig out first before we could get to the snow blower. The wind was just howling and it was bitter, bitter cold. We fought on for a bit and then I told dh this was crazy. We were both exhausted and frozen, so I insisted on calling a friend and seeing if she knew of someone who could come and plow out the driveway.
She gave me the number of a local farmer and to cut a long story short he came over with his tractor and snow blower and had the whole driveway cleared out within half an hour. He also cleared out by the mail box, as the mail lady had stopped delivering to us as she couldn't access the mail box easily. Now all she had to do was open her truck door and lean out, but as per the Post Office she is not allowed to open her door to deliver mail as it would violate her insurance if she is injured...........I could go on a rant for another hour about the post office and our dear mail lady, but it isn't worth my energy or my time.
I must say I could have kissed the farmer for clearing everything out though, as I was close to tears with the cold and the wind trying to clean out the driveway. The farmer wouldn't take any money for clearing out the driveway. As he is a widower I thought I would make him a couple of meals that he can freeze and eat at a later date, and we'll have him over for supper when the weather gets better as well.
So just in case you haven't figured it out,
I AM FED UP TO THE BACK TEETH OF THIS BLOODY WEATHER!!!!!
