Lol MBM! We've currently got our driveway snowblowed halfway into the yard so that there's somewhere to put the snow that's yet to come. The walkway from the drive to the house is wide enough now to fit my minivan up it, and the path to the goat feeders is about 5 feet wide, lol. We normally have it 2 feet wide. Hubby went crazy making sure he got everything pushed back. Good thing too it looks like, more to come soon I'm sure! Yay! Bring on the snow!!!

Gotta love Maine... apologizing for the weather. Shaking head in amazement here. Another day at home for the kids. Accept for the one who loves his school more than computer games even (who'd of thunk it?) they are all pretty pleased to be home.

Oh no. The Bob the builder song is running through my head though. I bet if anyone can, you can fix it. I hope it isn't too much of a pain.

Todd says he'll be over tomorrow if you'd like him to, and snowblow your drive w/ours. He doesn't expect to be home until late this afternoon, and then needs to sleep, but tomorrow he'll do your drive.

well, I've now got the problem of where to put the snow! I just came in from outside, shoveled out back and out front, and just leaned on the shovel looking at the driveway. We picked a bad year to decide to shovel... lol The windows at the back of the house on the first level are completely covered with snow, and all the snowbanks are now taller than me--even the ones out back! oh, we live in a split level, that's why the snow is covering the windows lol....thought I better clarify that So, I'm thinking that Michael and I are going to have to knock the top of the snowbanks back, and we can shovel the snow in the driveway up there!

You should see the pile in front of the house you two are looking at. Hope you are not coming anytime before, maybe, next October when the drive will be clear again. Just kidding, it should be clear by mid-September LOL.

In all reality though, it is growing giant. Right now, if you came tomorrow, there isn't a pick-up mounted plow that would knock down the bank, you would have to get a tractor with a bucket.

We got it fixed.

Matthew pulled and cleaned the plug. We got our driveway cleared!

Yoo Hoo!

Now we will make a trip into town to get a replacement spark plug and fuel filter [I do not want to go through this hassle again this win-tah].

My beard was a solid frozen mass of frozen-ness. I came in and got a cup of coffee, but my beard started dripping off chunks of ice and water everywhere, so I had to dive into the jacuzzi to get the ice out of my beard. Really I did not want to go in there, I had to do it
