Freak we have too much Snow

I took this picture from my back step on Wednesday night. It had snowed most of the day Monday. And pretty much all of the day Tuesday. I know we got over a foot of snow. If you notice the swing set? The snow is halfway up the slide and that fence? It has four boards to it's height...not just two. The circle shaped snow towards the bottom of the picture is our fire pit thingy completely covered with the white stuff.


Thankfully it stopped snowing on Wednesday and started to warm up. Unfortunately for this garbage truck driver it was garbage day. The snow was still on the ground and snow plows have a difficult time clearing cul de sacs, as those who live on them can attest. I thought as he came up the street "I hope he doesn't get stuck." But then I thought "How can he get stuck he's such a large vehicle. I'm sure he has the wieght that he needs to plow through all this stuff." Boy was I wrong.

And of course I had to take videos to prove it.






I didn't get the shot of the chain breaking. They had this pickup truck using a chain to try and pull this huge dump truck out with a chain....and the chain broke. George saw it. He thought it was cool. Unfortunately I couldn't stay and find out if he got out because I was taking George to the Dr.'s.

As we came around the corner at the bottom of our street about 45 minutes later I could see that the truck had made it out of it's original spot that it was stuck in.

Now it was on the opposite side of the circle. Stuck again. And again I had to take a video of it.





Am I a bad person because I totally laughed at this poor drivers misfortune? It totally made my day. Can you tell that by the way I laugh in the videos? I'm just lucky I didn't get stuck in my own driveway. I totally had to gun in reverse to make it out to the plowed area of the street.

Yesterday it warmed up to almost 50 degrees so the snow was on the melt and the streets were more secure. Thank goodness. Too bad for the garbage truck driver that our garbage day was Wednesday and not Thursday. What a difference a day makes.

Wow, that is a lot of snow. I am JUST SO freezing just looking at it. Makes me feel glad I live in California.

I love your laugh. And your commentary. I love snow when I don't actually have to go out in it. When I have to drive I just get cranky.

It's only the beginning of January and I'm already sick of the snow. Too bad we've got 2 more months of this stuff.

I totally would've been laughing at the garbage truck driver's misfortune. You shouldn't feel bad at all.

I would've lost my sanity by then.
I can't stand the snow longer than one day.
It's too cold and too wet.

Mary said...

So glad I live further south...I have no problem driving in the rain, but the snow scares me!

Jillene said...

I would have laughed and laughed. And laughed and laughed.

I am tired of the snow already. Why can't it just snow up in the mountains and leave us poor valley people alone?

Brooke said...

I'm not a snow fan either. Poor garbage truck driver. Though, I would've laughed, too.

Nobody You Know said...
