Love Thy Neighbor

6:30am - I text my brother's friend who does snowplowing to ask if he could do my driveway. He said he just got off a 12hour shift and could he do it at 3pm. Not thinking I'd be going anywhere, I said OK.

9:00am - I go out and start to shovel the 4+" of snow by my garage. The neighbor guy was out with his snowthrower and asked if the guy was coming to plow. I told him not til 3, and he offered to do my entire driveway. He declined offers of money, cookies, and pie for payment of his services. He said he knew what a pain the incline could be and that it was not a problem. What a doll!

12noon - After 2 1/2 hours of shoveling clean-up (i.e. carrying to the front or back yards), the driveway is done. I took a shower and my tush was so cold that when the hot water rolled off it, it was cold. Literally! I know... TMI, but that's how cold I was.

Anyway, I'm thinking I like both my "new" neighbors. :)
