Blizzard 2009

So this morning the snow was up taller than my knees. The husband was shoveling the car out of the driveway, because today was a duty day. Interestingly, the neighbor across the street required a tow truck to get home, so this truck was just out of our driveway blocking the street. An interesting series of events followed.

This is how tall the snow is...I came outside about 20 minutes after the husband started shoveling.
This is me. Drew carved a nice little path from the front door to the drive.

This is the tow truck blocking the road. Drew still had to back out of the driveway, but backed himself into the snow bank on the other side of the road.

This is one nice thing about the new uniform, warm enought to shovel snow. This is round 2 of shoveling (on the neighbors side of the street).

The nice tow truck driver gave the CRV a little tug to get her un-stuck. The tow truck driver's one request....."Please don't hit my truck!"


  1. EEEWW! You should move to Florida or something so you don't have to deal with that anymore. ;)

  2. Hopefully the tow truck driver didn't charge you! Terry got charged over $200 to tow his truck from West Linn to 90th and Glisan. Ridiculous!!!

  3. No he was there towing the neighbor home...he just helped Drew out, because it was mostly his fault that Drew was stuck. (The tow truck was blocking the way out, so Drew was trying to turn around....)

  4. How much snow did you end up getting with that storm?? My house up in Derby got about 9-12 inches depending on what area you were standing in at the driveway. Looks like there is another storm headed for us tomorrow (friday).


I appreciate comment love! Thanks for stopping by!
