this morning the snowploughs came down the street and filled in the sidewalk and left a bit of snow in the driveway…

they also ploughed a big slice of my grass so that the fire hydrant is accessible… it will be interesting to see how it looks in the spring…

something I’ve learned over the last few years is that it needs to be shovelled as quickly as possible, so that it doesn’t turn into a solid lump of ice which can’t be moved…

I had finished the end of the sidewalk and was just starting on the bottom of the driveway when my grandson arrived and finished it off…

everything was icy… it had rained a bit last night and then froze so the cement was slick…

I was happy that he finished the driveway because my boots were slip sliding away…

but it was all done in a short time and hopefully the ice will melt over the next day or so… if it doesn’t I have a supply of ice melter that I can put on the ground…
