There are two things in my future that I am quite sure of. More snow, and a new phone.
You might recall – My cell phone is somewhere in a snow bank on the side of a friend’s sledding run. I’d wanted to downgrade a little bit, and I suppose I achieved that with flying colors … downgraded myself right down into a snowy gully. Really, I just wanted a smaller phone with a decent camera. Christmas Miracle-wise, Verizon called us the next morning – contract renewal time – with a free phones offer! I shall have this thing in my hot little hands within a week. Six different resolutions, 3.0 megapixels. Maybe it’s okay. We’ll see.
Enough of this tech talk. Have I told you about my snow banks? The RV is positively buried! (That’s good – I had planned to bank the snow for insulation.) While we have had our challenges, the RV skirting and all the precautions we took to keep things from freezing has worked like a charm. Pump, pipes, water heater – all happy and working. (Pardon the backwards photo – long story.)
I’ve been shoveling for our height-challenged dog as well. Okay, okay. Besides for the dog, I like having a chunk of the yard cleared as well. It’s helpful for when we fill the RV water tank each day – a drama in itself. But that’s a story for another post. That’s a full-sized washtub in the photo, by the way.
I’m going to have to start shoveling the driveway starting at the bottom. I’ve been working my way down, and now the snow-cliffs on either side are five or six feet above driveway level. I suppose that fact in itself is fine. But lifting a shovel full of snow up that high? Yeah, I gotta start shoveling from the other end.
