And Finally We Are Done With the Storm

The snow had stopped falling on the morning of the third day. We had to clear up our driveway one more time from the overnight snowfall. This is the final result after we got done.

After that was done, we worked on digging a path to the front door through the snow piled over the walkway.

We enjoyed watching our neighbor’s cat playing in the snow.

Snow removal from the patio in the back was started because of concern about the patio collapsing from the weight of the snow.

The fourth day dawned with the cul-de-sac still not cleared of snow.  I was anticipating another day of being stuck in the home.

But we were pleasantly surprised by the morning arrival of the snow clearing equipment.

The guy driving the red pickup truck noticed me taking pictures from a window and did me a favor by breaching the wall in the snow in front of our driveway with a single run with his snow shovel.

And then we were completely clear after some more work expanding the breach to the width of the driveway.  The mail box can even be reached!

And hopefully that is that for this storm!

PS. As you can see, the front section of our roof is clear of snow because of the solar panels.  It all came sliding down with a massive thump on the evening of the second day.  Our neighbors all still have snow on their roofs.
