My Two Daughters (14 & 20) Cleared The Snow From Today’s HUGE Storm Like The Experts They Are.

by Anura Guruge



The 14-year old, in pink, is handling the snowblower. This is our 2nd year with a snowblower. I taught her to use it last year. Though she pretends to complain she likes using it. Beats shoveling snow — THOUGH she is very good & FAST at shoveling. She is like a machine. Just gets going.

They both have had years of practice. Prior to last year we did it all by hand. Then I busted my knee when I slipped shoveling. THEY insisted that we get a snowblower. So, I got this monster, 3-stage. It sure worked well today.

Yes, I did fair amount of driving the snowblower. But very little shovelling for a change. I am not supposed to do much since I had cataract surgery just last week! SMILE.

That Was Quite The Snowstorm (‘Gloria’, I think) — & Glory Be We Got 20″ (0.5m) Of Snow.

It was much, much more than they had forecast. They assured us that it was a Southern storm, i.e., most of the snow would be gone by the time it got as far North as us.

They got it wrong. We got about x5 than they had told us. Yes, they had various excuses.

It was a LOT of snow. Quite frightening in its volume BUT quite beautiful. In the end we managed. Glad of that.
