S-N-O-W!!!!!


Good LORD did we get snow!!!!

I would guess that we received just under 2 feet of snow. It started snowing around 10pm on Saturday night and didn't stop until well after 2pm on Sunday.

Jim and I shoveled for two and a half hours.

Ouch.

Actually, as sore as I am, it kind of feels like I just had a really good workout at the gym.
Which I suppose is a good thing, since I have no intention of going this afternoon. :-)

Anyway - the weekend was quite fun and very productive.

Friday night we had a bunch of softball friends over, which turned out to be SO much fun. On Saturday, Jim and I did some more Christmas shopping and are SOOO close to being done. It's very exciting. Saturday night we went grocery shopping and then went to dinner at 'the Grille'. Getting the grocery shopping out of the way was SUCH a good idea since we were prety much snowed in until 1:30 or so on Sunday.
Once we were shoveled out, we went to Jim's sister's house to celebrate the birthday's of our nephew Danny (his birthday was on the 19th) and our niece Katie (her birthday was the 20th). We ate a ton of food and I had a few drinks. :-)
Between the shoveling, the food, and the beer - I was MORE than ready for bed, so Jim and I went to bed early last night.

Quick story: We live on a very main street, and as a result we end up with a HUGE mound of snow at the end of our driveway due to the fact that the plows are coming by over and over again. This snow tends to be VERY densely packed, extremely heavy, and as it was with yesterday's snowfall, it's usually about 'hip' high. As Jim and I were tackling the snow pile at the end of our driveway, a couple of guys drove by in a white pickup truck with the window rolled down, yelled out at us "Ha Ha!!!" and drove away laughing.

Now, I can take a joke as well as the next guy, but when I've been outside in the snow shoveling for two hours, I'm in NO mood for jokes. ESPECIALLY when it's coming from two idiots that are driving a landscaping company's pick up truck.

Yes, that's right....these idiots were driving along, laughing at us from their company truck. Seriously??? How stupid.

Needless to say, once all was said and done - Jim called the company to let them know that there were employees out there in a company truck laughing at people, and not exactly representing the company very well. Especially a company that offers sanding and plowing as one of their services in the winter.

I also posted the company info on my wall on facebook and encouraged all my local friends to avoid them. Their website is 'Under Construction', but I'll post it here just for laughs.
If you're in the Bridgewater, MA area or know anyone who is - tell them that Larry's Lawn Care are to be avoided. They employ idiots.

To quote one of my all-time favorite movies: "DON'T FUCK WITH ME FELLAS!!!! This ain't my first time at the rodeo."

Maybe they were laughing with you, not at you.

No? Okay, they were laughing at you.

You weren't wearing matching pink jumpsuits, were you? Or furry Chewbacca boots?

No? Then I guess they were just dicks. Probably drunk dicks.

Now they pissed-off a blogger - douches. Dumb douches.

Get a snowblower already! Jeesh, you live in the snow belt of Massachusetts.

And you're right, it's like a heavy workout at the gym. My housemate and I were out for an hour and a half removing that beautiful white crap. LOL My back was feeling it the next day!

A little bit of snow in the UK - and all services fall apart!

Well, here's hoping you got dug out and are surviving all that snow! Welcome to MY winter world!
