|House down the street-- they all end up looking like this... tiny front yards... with huge mountains of snow 'taken' only from the short sidewalk in front of the house.|
|Front of my house in the early part of winter. The snow mountain got taller and my shoveled sidewalk area got more narrow- eventually it became the 'width' of the snow shovel.|
|This is what happens if you park and THEN THE SNOWPLOW comes down the street. Note the color of the fire hydrant. I always notice the different colors of them when I travel. They are red in the states.|
|This is what happens when you don't move your car for a few days... Less than a week results in this type of 'car trapped' situation. I was glad that I had a driveway to park my car in and that I did not have to park on the streets.|
|My old sled that I found (bought of course) and brought home.|
Sometimes, they do get snow in this area-- but, it is only a few inches and it leaves quickly. I am always excited when it first snows. Always hoping that school will be cancelled... just like the kids. "Teachers" hope for snow days too!!
