had some excellent entertainment a few days ago…

I had called the city as the fire hydrant in my front yard had been covered with a windrow when the city cleared the snow from the streets recently…

they also missed cleaning the end of my driveway… it hasn’t been shovelled for the last few storms so it was hard to tell there was actually a driveway there, lol…

anyway, a vehicle came with a big scoop on the front of it and I had a great time watching how well the driver maneuvered it… they cleaned out the area around the fire hydrant, and even got out to be sure where it was… for a minute I was worried about what would happen if they hit it… yikes…

then they cleared the windrow at the bottom of the driveway… they backed up and went down the street looking for places where they could dump it…

finally, they scraped a spot in front of the neighbour’s where two cars had been plowed in… the neighbour dug one out and moved it back a few feet, but there were a couple of inches of packed snow where the car had been… they danced around the vehicles… very talented people…

when I was out shovelling today, I took a few photos along the walkway… I had noticed crevices in the middle of the front snowbank and took a picture of one close to the sidewalk…

I hope it doesn’t cause an avalanche into the sidewalk, lol…
