Earl and I celebrated a good share of our Valentine’s Day by cleaning out the driveway together. We took turns snowblowing and then he made lunch while I did the shoveling.
I guess every couple has their own way of celebrating romance.
Earl measured last night’s snowfall when we started snowblowing at 11:00 a.m. This is 13-inches in the middle of the driveway. It usually takes about 30 minutes for me to clean out the driveway with the snowblower and little shoveling I usually do. Today it took over three hours. The snow kept falling the entire time, I’m going to have to make another run in the morning if Earl hopes to get to work.
College is closed today. For the first time in a decade, Earl has closed his plant due to weather and has canceled his traveling plans, so he’s home all day too.
And it’s Valentine’s Day.
The snowblowing can wait until tonight. After all, if you’re going to move one foot of snow, you might as well move two.
