This past weekend, April 14th and 15th, 2018 will go down in history for Green Bay, Wisconsin as we were hit by the biggest snow storm in 130 years. It was epic! The final total of snow over those two days was 24.2 inches. Most of us were hunkered down the entire weekend, wondering if the blowing, drifting, freezing, white stuff was ever going to stop.
Well, yes, it did stop–then came the clean–up or so you would think. But no! It is Tuesday and I went on a walk today, as I do nearly every day. Unbelievable how many people haven’t cleared the sidewalks. This was especially true of people on corners. And if they did happen to do the sidewalk, chances were pretty good they did not tackle the huge mound that the snowplow left at the corner. Now this old girl isn’t about to start mountain climbing at this stage in her life. I need a path through the snow bank so I can cross the street! Can’t tell you how many times I had to double back and go down the driveway and walk in the road to the next driveway.
I lived on a corner for 30 years, it’s one of the reasons I finally moved, all that darn shoveling! But I did it, by myself most of the time. I cleaned out the corner banks and also the fire hydrant on my property. Yes it was a pain, but I did it.
Come on people!! End of rant… 🙂
P.S. I am not totally heartless. I do realize there are folks out there unable to do that kind of work. They get a pass, but the rest of you…
