People who drive a snow plow for a living are generally paid by the job, rather than by the hour. Thus they go fast, often taking out mailboxes as they fly by.
One morning I saw this enormous machine slowly and carefully plowing, without the usual burst of speed, and given the care being taken, was not at all surprised to see a woman driving it. Larry measured the plow blade - it is fifteen feet across.
For now the snow is all gone!! On Thursday it was 71 degrees F with delightful sunshine. Friday was another warm and sunny day, and then today's rain finally washed away the last of the snow. At least for now. :>} I don't think we've ever had a snow free April, but this makes a nice change. The roads are a good two feet wider than when they're lined with snow piles.
I have Larry's hat about half finished. Next I'm planning to make a pink pig. ;0)
I have been the most terrible procrastinator today. I have had a pair of pants to hem for a co-worker for TWO WEEKS, and still haven't gotten myself in gear to do it. There is nothing difficult about it, it won't take long, and she is one of the nicest people in the world, so what is wrong with me??
