Boy, December sure didn’t waste any time, did it? We got hit with first snowstorm of the season at some point yesterday or last night. And I had no idea it was coming.
I mean, I knew it was going to snow. But the weather reports predicted three to five inches. Yeah, no. It was more like three times five inches.
Imagine my surprise at six-thirty this morning when I had to force open the back door to let the dog out.
I just got done shoveling the front half of the driveway and front municipal sidewalk and holy moly, was that heavy snow.
On the plus side, at least the first snowstorm of the season waited until December this time around. Last winter, we got absolutely slammed with a Snowmageddon-level snowstorm in mid-November.
That was the snowstorm where a dimwitted idiot got his car stuck in the middle of my street and just walked away and left it there for seven freaking hours. Right smack at the end of my driveway. The dumbass.
At least this snowstorm was dumbass-free.
Though it wasn’t bird-of-prey-free.
As I was shoveling the driveway apron, I noticed clumps of bird feathers fluttering down onto the snow. I looked up and there above me, sitting on the top of the utility pole, was a hawk feasting on some poor, unsuspecting bird.
What can I say? Never a dull moment when the first snowstorm hits.
I’m not done with the shoveling yet. I ran out of steam before I could shovel around my car. But, honestly, since I’m not fixing to go anywhere, it can wait until tomorrow. Hopefully by then my Lupus-ridden body is rested enough to clear the rest.
At least until the next snowstorm hits.
