We then decided to go straight home.
After we got home we found out that our street had finally been plowed. The problem with that is that our street is a dead end street East/West & the truck comes down our side first so we get more snow at our side of the road than our across-the-street neighbors.
I have just come in from the 3rd shoveling of our driveway & sidewalk, fortunately the plow truck had just come again (see above). Last year, I had a lot of trouble with my back which went out after pushing a little snow from our porch. This year I have figured out if I bend my back I don't have trouble with it.
