buried here

We are buried in snow here in Western MA, more snow than we have had in the last 5 years combined. At least it feels that way. I have 8mm movies of when I was a kid, jumping off 6 foot high drifts. Drifts as high as the top of my swing set. That’s the kind of snow we have this year. Just add some wind and drifting. I have an ongoing battle with the local town snow plow. I live across from a street which requires the plow to make a 3 point turn. Each time he backs into my driveway to make the turn. Except that he misses my driveway, and knocks several cubic yards of snow and ice chunks from the snowbank into my driveway, before proceeding on his way. So I’m out there again, sweating in the cold, sore back, flinging snow on top of a pile that is 7 feet high, and growing daily.
