After the Storm of this half-Century in January 2007

After the storm - Dad tried to shovel out our short driveway
After the storm - Dad tried to shovel out our short driveway. I was very surprised he even wanted to make this effort, because he'd felt so weak and poorly the day of the storm. Sunshine seems to bring him back to life.

He gave up after two short tries in the morning. Then when a bobcat appeared to clear our neighbour's driveway he went out to see if he could hire him to do ours. But the bobcat took off before he got there.

The bobcat that appeared out of the blue to clear our driveway in less than 5 minutes!
Later in the afternoon, the bobcat that appeared out of the blue to clear our driveway in less than 5 minutes!

Before Dad could get his parka on to go thank the man - he took off - job done

Dad did manage to get around to the back door, and took away the snow blocking that door. You can judge how high it was by the parts he left on the shelf table under the window, and on top of his lathe on the right.

in the evening I continued to carve out a path to the garden
"In the evening I continued to carve out a path to the garden so I could toss the compost onto the drifts. However, with the bitterly cold temperatures, I've only averaged about 6 feet a night.

Our highest drift of snow is between the blue spruce  tree and the windows of our Sun room and Dad's bedroom.
"Our highest drift of snow is between the blue spruce tree and the windows of our Sun room and Dad's bedroom. That thing you see sticking out of the drift is the top handle on Dad's step-exercising machine. It's been rusting there for a couple of years already.

here you can see how far I've inched down the path in the garden
Here you can see how far I've inched down the path in the garden. Well, last night I got home just before midnight so I skipped that one.

P.S. We also had trouble that evening with sewer gases in the basement. I ended up calling our neighbour, Larry Neufeld, who works in construction, and he graciously came over to check it out, and went up on the roof and knocked the crusted snow off the sewer vent. I slept better at night for that good deed!
