Snow, snow and more snow. A true snow job

I haven’t been posting because 1) I was writing. 15k words in two days last week. Figured anybody reading this will be glad to hear that. Also 2) snow. Lots of it. More snow. And it’s still snowing. Last I looked, Boston had something like 55 inches in a month. The kids have been out of school for 6 days, I think.

When I heard this latest storm was on the way, I had to go out and cut down the snowbanks by the side of the driveway to make room for more snow. I think I cut away probably 2-3 feet of snow. It took all day. The next day was shoveling. As was today. It’s almost full again. And the snow just keeps on falling.

When the snow on the roof melts, it often freezes. After awhile the ice builds up, creating a dam that stops more water from melted snow from escaping. So it sits there and then slowly seeps into the house, down the walls, through the ceilings. Not fun.
