Last night we got what appears to be 1/2"-1" of snow. (It's hard to tell with the drifting. I can still see grass in my back yard.)

One of the neighbors decided that 11:30pm was a good time to bust out the snow blower and clear the massive accumulation before glaciers could form and bring forth the dawn of a new ice age. That's how I assume he justified the noble deed of waking up the neighbors (me).

Luckily, around 6:30am, another neighbor decided to bookend my sleep cycle with snow blowers.

Me? I'm gonna let that shit melt on its own.

(Note: Last year I posted ONCE, almost exactly one year ago. This year I might shoot for two posts. YEP!)

    When snow is on the ground, sounds are muted, so the environment sounds quieter. Yet when snow is removed it's incredibly loud. Perhaps all that noise is needed to counterbalance the quiet snow brings.

    That's a fail. Etiquette is if you snowblow after 10 pm or before 10 am, you have to do both your adjacent neighbors' walks. Are you with me?

    I bought an electric snowblower because I couldn't stand the noise of my old gas powered blower… and the old one was less than fully functional. It sounds like a loud hair dryer, but I still wouldn't use it that late.

    The guy that did it actually does the sidewalk a few houses down each way from his house. Usually. A couple times he's gone all the way to the corner which saves me the hassle of doing the sidewalk in front of my house. I have so many sidewalks. :-/ This time he didn't though, so his disturbance was extra annoying.

    I love blowing snow (what a weird phrase). If I had a snowblower, I would just walk around all day clearing sidewalks. And I would make the path on the sidewalk go all windy, like a windy river. Those are supposed to be more healthy than straight rivers. So a windy sidewalk should be more healthy too. Who needs completely straight sidewalks?

    I'm picturing you Family Circus-ing all over the neighbor's lawns.
