Thanksgiving day 6.30 am looking out the kitchen window
10:30 pm last night we heard three large explosions and the power went out for good.
6 am Thursday the house is cold and I need to rig up the generator so I can fire up the furnace and get the fridge going.
But in order to do that I got to shovel my way out to the garage and clear the snow from the doors...
30 minutes later . . . we have electrons and consequently heat.
I clear out enough of the driveway and the truck, and make a run to the gas station for 15 gallons of fuel to keep the generator going for a while. I figure chances are it will be a long one. Made it home just in time to see the power company getting ready to switch the main line back on.
Only in pictures . . . and from far away
The stuff is plain cruel. It knocked down the hedge row that shields us from the neighborhood asshole.
Four hours of work gets the rest of the driveway and the back of the house cleared.
One day we are going to move somewhere I don't have to do this
Ever try moving 30 pounds of slop at the end of a 25 foot aluminum roof rake? not fun at all
1: 30 pm I am finally done. I'm taking a nap . . . UNTIL APRIL. . . .
