Thank goodness we finally realized that we're ... well... 50 or so.
After laying in bed the other night listening to the porch roof creak and thud under the weight and thawing and freezing - we hired out.
Two guys with shovels and a ladder.
We've let most of the front walk go.
The driveway has an inch of solid ice.
Now that the roof is clear the snow piles around the house are 6 feet.
We have given up on Ferris' hand me downs and purchased our own braces and wraps, I am using a cane as well.
More snow is coming this weekend, followed by another storm next week.
I am calm. Eerily so.
