Conquerors of the Snow

snow blowersThe guys from Macanie Trucking show up the day after a snowstorm and clear out our driveway. I am always glad to see them! Our drive is fairly long and a bit steep so snow that's more than a few inches deep makes it hard to navigate.

  1. You got hit pretty hard. We're still sitting in a mostly-snowless winter. Less than an inch fell today and that's the most we've had since early December. So rare.

  2. Yes, I don't recall any winter as snowy as this in Virginia. We had substantial snow before Christmas, and then this month we got an nice 5 inches on the ground, then 21" inches fell, and a few days later we got 4 or 5 more inches. I've had enough!
