Change in Plans

They're plowing tomorrow instead of today. I started to clean the car off as you can see in the picture above, and stopped. I tried backing the car out, but that proved futile, as I got myself stuck even more. I don't own a shovel, and I thought my son had the shovel we had for years at the other home, but he said 'no'. So, I called the office to see if they could dig me out. So, tomorrow I will be going to the library. In the meantime, I baked the spaghetti squash and will make half of it up for chili today. The hamburger is thawed, so I'm interested in how that will turn out. I'll use the other half of the squash for tuna casserole either tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on how much chili I make and if I have leftovers for tomorrow. Now, I'm going to get to these notifications then back to work on my book, I had started on earlier when I finished the notifications earlier. Picture is my car and the mountains of snow in the parking lot.

I can't imagine shoveling anything again.

I didn't think I would ever do it again when I moved in here. I just might need to buy a shovel to have on hand for this kind of snow.

I love the red car. All that snow...and they dig you out of it. How nice!

They haven't yet, so we'll see if they do. I did ask. If it were bigger, I'd be able to get out of there, but that little car is no match for the snow we got.

@MsBooklover So, do I, because I really don't have the strength to shovel it myself. It's the heavy wet kind.

Oh my goodness, your poor car. And I wouldn't really appreciate having to drive off somewhere while they plowed the parking lot but I guess that is the only way to get it cleared.

It is. They finally dug me out this morning, and they moved it so I didn't need to worry about the inch of ice also on the ground this morning. It also means I don't need to leave while they plow the parking lot and they will bring my car back when the plowing is finished.

@just4him I was thinking that you could probably just stay put. It was your lucky day.

I saw the weather report this morning and tomorrow starts a warm up for the next few days even getting up to 50, so all this will most likely be gone in a few days.

@amadeo Yes, it should. Our water tables were low, and the snowfall totals were also low, but now we have exceeded last year's total with this snowfall. I just hope it will help the water tables when it starts to melt.

I do have a good day planned. Oh well. I sent an e-mail to my friend letting her know I might not make it to the pool until Wednesday, depending on how soon I get dug out.

@Courtlynn Yep, they dug me out this morning, so I'll be going back to the Y tomorrow. They also did me one better I wasn't expecting - they moved my car so I wouldn't need to deal with the ice that is all over the walks and parking lot. It's at least an inch thick and hazardous.

They have those shovels that you can keep in your car trunk. They should be on sale now.

I should probably get one just in case for next time. However they were good about digging me out this morning.

I'm sure you are glad you don't need to shovel. That was one of the reasons you moved to Oregon. Thank you. I'm getting ready to make it. The spaghetti squash is cooked.

That's being buried. All that snow doesn't damage the car?

No, the car's just fine. It's just stuck at the moment. I can't move it.

I'll let you know. I only have the squash cooked. I still need to fork it and get the hamburger done first before I add it.

@KristenH It was delicious. I was going to save some for leftovers today, but I only had breakfast and was hungry, so no leftovers. I didn't make my usual huge crock pot, which lasts a week sometimes. Just enough for my large kettle, which amounted to about three to four good sized bowls.

Your local Mother Nature doesn't seem to realize it is Spring. Hope your chili turns out for you.

The chili turned out great! Spring took a vacation and left winter in charge.

I can go out just fine, though at the moment there's also a lot of ice on the sidewalks and parking lot as I discovered this morning.

@nela13 Yes, it is. The sidewalks are good. The snow is starting to melt as the temps are going up and will continue to go up for the next week. Perhaps spring came back from her vacation.

No, no thawing yet. And to make it worse instead of better, there is about an inch of ice on all walkways and the parking lot making it hazardous.

Yet, you do come north before the end of winter when there is still a chance of snow. Okay, you came back in spring. Spring took a vacation and left winter in charge.
