Think about others

All this snow...yep we got about another 6-10 inches last night, on top of the 8-10 we already had sitting there and we are looking at 10-18 more tonight, well it has got me thinking.

What about all those single ladies, seniors, or close to seniors who are living on their own...what are they supposed to do??

I have an aunt who is in her upper 40's and I just can't imagine what it is like to have to go out and shovel your driveway when we get this much snow.
There are easy options like snow blowers, snow plow contracts etc, but who can afford those??

I just feel bad for and wanted to make sure you feel bad for, and not JUST feel bad for, but do something to help those people.
Be aware of people on your street or relatives that might need some help...if you get all this snow like we do.

I wish I could but right now with this shoulder injury, I can't even shovel for the mailman...so I figured I remind us all to think of others!

Glad I have a husband right about now.

We have a neighbor with a snowblower who has done our sidewalks (very nice, given we are on a corner lot). We still haven't figured out who he is or where he lives. He's bundled up so we can't get a good look at him anyway. He came out the other day (the first big snowfall) when hubby was shoveling. Last night he came out and we didn't even see him.

A few years ago, a local high school group volunteered to shovel driveways, rake leaves, anything needed from them. I wonder if they still do that.... Like you, I'm glad I have a husband (Ie. Someone else) to do the work of shoveling the driveway!!
