The kids, helped ( Only if they wanted $$$ mun-eee ) and figuring dad will give it to them.
Now, the kids live close, but have their own to shovel. God forbid they should offer to help clean for us.
WE have a young man that offers to shovel, and we use him. Today, the side neighbors and ( Drum Roll Please!) Our Grand Daughter, believe it or not, volunteered to clean off the cars and the porches. Again.... $$$$ ..... It's fun night at the bar that the college kids frequent; so I guess she knows PaPa here, will give her some money for her help. LOL

Besides doing happy dances during a snowfall, silly @$$ jimmy here, went outside, and brought in a container of snow, for great grandson Liam could see it close up.
He took one look, as if to say,"Whatta You crazy ??"

It's funny you had mentioned finding a kid to shovel snow!
The wife and I were talking about how in the 50's, we would march the neighborhood; shovel on back, and asking "You want your sidewalks shoveled?".... "25cents!"...
And they would come back with, "OK, but the whole width, and not just a shovel wide path!"..... NOW! ... fugetit! $25.00 is hard to get a kid to shovel.
The last time ( last year ) I payed 30.00 + 5.00 each car. 2 young kids were done in 1 hour with 10 inches of snow.

YUP !

I'm offering ten bucks an inch, and still get no takers...... signs posted in all three grocery stores/Deli's, and no phone calls !

Like you, Embryodad, I shoveled for $ after we moved into town, and "cleaned up" from the older neighbors doing driveways and shoveling out parked cars....... just one more piece of Americana gone...


BTW, they are calling for 8-to-12 here, so I'd better hit the bank today............

My guy charges $35 to clear my parking spot and clean off my car. I give him an extra $5. He's in his 20's, very good and very reliable.

Tonight will be the third time this winter I've had him (and my senior neighbors, too).

I thank heavens for him - well worth the $40.

Good luck to all you in the north eastern part of the country.

We got the cold an a 40% chance of a little white stuff. They said up to an inch but realistically most likely no accumulation.

Around here we got a little snow, just enough to make the roads slippery for the drive home last night.

Hackettstown only got 10 inches at the most. I'm looking at only 8 on my back deck.
Now at 12:30 noon, the wind is whipping up.
A few miles north of me got 17 inches. My cousin in Scranton / Wilkes Barre area got 17 inches.

GD is going out later to clean the cars and the driveway.

The storm is over. Nothing spectacular. Just 12 inches of snow; with 18 inch drifts whiling around in the wind.
GD shoveled off the cars, and the neighbor broke through the plowed ice / slush, that had us blocked in.

All cleaned out, well, at least we are not snowed in. Mommy just went to her pedicure appointment in Newton. I told her, have fun finding a parking spot.

I'm just gonna throw some rock salt, and ride out the melt.

we had about 12" - wet snow, then sleet/rain, then snow, then freezing.

I have a single stage snow blower than can handle 16-20" no problem, but a single stage and wet snow = instant chute jams and a major no go.

my neighbor had his grass guy coming (the neighbor has a mega-Honda 2 stage snow blower....???<<my reaction) and four of us agreed to have the snow done by the grass guy....

well, coming at 1pm/ then coming at 5pm, then coming in 45 minutes . . .
shows up at 8pm - oh the truck broke down....then badda-bing-badda-mo'bad.... snow blower breaks down - half a driveway and 'that's all folks'

YOU'RE FIRED!

so today 'the neighborhood' did it's thing with the homeowner's two stage snowblower. cleaned out all the drives&walks - no grass catcher required.

this is the second time in 15 years where a wet heavy big snow put me under. end of season gonna' get me a two-stage. can't rely on anything but yourself anymore.

I had to rely on the neighbor to cut me out of the snow.
The wife and her friend, decided to clean out the garage, and they took the snow blower, a 24" Troy Bilt in great condition, and they dragged it to the back and shoved it under the deck, and covered it with a tarp haphazardly.
I go to gas it, and the tarp is frozen to the ground. Also, the way they put the tarp on, it leaked water, and the blower is frozen to the ground. I Quit!
SOooooo! I was nastily asked,"What are you gonna do?".... My answer was, "I don't know, but if I were you, I would suggest YOU call Macgyver!"

Lol Jimmy! I guess women just don't think right when it comes to some stuff.

It's finally warming up around here. Low 80's today and I'm loving it.

On the down side, the yellow pollen has been out for about a week and a half...ah choo . We need one good rain to wash it out of the trees and bid goodbye to it.
