Snow = exhaustion, frustration, depression.
We used our 5th and last snow day today. If we use anymore we will loose days from our April break. So I am on vacation a day early. We were open the last two days and they were stressful. I've driven in worse but ............
The hood of my bus is 5' off the ground so clearing heavy snow off is physically hard for me. My lights and wipers have had to be cleared constantly. The kids behavior is always worse when the weather is bad. Wednesday I managed to get my car stuck twice. I was able to rock it out both times......frustrating.
John spent over two hours shoveling and raking again today in a bitter wind. Just after he had pulled all the snow down on the kerosene tank the delivery truck showed up and he had to dig the tank out right then. All that was on the truck was 32 gallons so that was all we got. That put us back to 1/2 a tank so we're good for awhile but it was frustrating for John to work that hard and not get topped off. He also had to dig out the propane tank.
We only had to have the plow come once today. Our mail hasn't been delivered the last three days. The box is finally cleared to where they can get to it again. Our newspaper box is totally demolished we'll have to get them to give us a new one.
The snowblower is fixed but we can't have it back yet. It's actually been fixed since Tuesday but they won't let us have it back until Arien's authorizes the warranty payment. They finally told us today that it takes about a week to get authorization. Does this make sense to anybody else? They get to take a week to pay while we have to pay to have the driveway plowed 2 or 3 times a day? Another week of plowing bills and I could have bought a new snowblower!
We are planning to head south in the morning. The last I heard route 81 is closed in PA so it may be a longer trip than usual but by tomorrow night I should see grass! BJ is going to house sit for us and everything seems to be in good shape so I won't have to worry about anything. Hopefully Sunday I'll be sitting in the sun reading a good book!
