Today was the second day following the Blizzard of 2013, and despite the valiant efforts of many homeowners in our neighborhood at cleaning up pathways, it’s now starting to feel like we’re quite trapped in this predicament.
While I’m confident the town is doing everything in its power to get the streets clear, I also know that physical resources are limited, and our side streets will receive lowest priority. But the clearing just can’t come quickly enough.
Fortunately, temperatures were mild today: It was a balmy 32 degrees all day, but the sun shone brightly and there was no wind. Some of us (including myself) were given to stripping down a bit and working in shirt sleeves.
At least our neighborhood is now more or less “connected” to the nearby main road, if only via foot travel. And all of us are still laughing and enjoying a certain sense of camaraderie through all this. My only real concern at this point (besides the return of a serviceable street, of course) is the prediction of more precipitation and freezing rains for tomorrow.
That’s it for today. Things move very slowly in the Land of Way Too Much Snow. We’ll see what excitement tomorrow brings…
