We got about 6 inches of snow last night. I measured it with my hand at 10am when I went out to shovel--I still subscribe to that old wives' tale "The West Side doesn't get snow!" until faced with evidence. I did one lane and was reflecting that Genevieve was so right when she said that she used to like snow until she moved to Cleveland, when a guy pulled up in a minivan.
"Hey, I got a snowblower. For 10 bucks I'l do from your car out to the street."
Best $10 I could have spent, truly. He did from my car to the street, cleared out the plow buildup, did the walkway steps and porch. I have his flyer for next time.
