Plowing With Snow!

I was lamenting the fact that I am not allowed to use the snow plow.  This morning DH was called into work at about 2 am.  I had to be up and out of the house by 5 am.  When I left there was a 3 foot drift in the Ancient Uncle's driveway, and it was still snowing hard! No way he was going anywhere today, and no offense to older drivers but he really should not be out today anyway in this kind of weather. 

(When I left work it was sunny, blue sky, but cold!)  Nice enough the salt melted the snow on the roads.  

When I got home from work I told DH that I had to go back to work at 9pm and was working an overnight, and to be careful because the county had plowed and we had a 2-3 foot snow drift to get into our driveway.  DH told me go out, start the plow truck flip this switch, back it out of the barn.  It is easy peasy.  Go through the uncle's and push all the way to the other side of the road.  Lift the blade come down the road to our drive, and drop the plow and plow through our driveway, past the barn and into the piles.  Make several passes so I can get into the driveway when I get home.  I asked him are you sure, especially with my previous faux pas with the lawnmower and the house, and the mailbox.  He said sure.  So out I went. 

 Our drive at least DH can get into it and near the porch.  See that huge pile it is at least 6 feet tall.  Yep that is all mine!  It is taller than our deck.
 The drive to the Ancient Uncles, and the 2nd pile I created.  I also created another on the other side of the driveway down a bit.
The plow truck.  I even backed it part way into the barn so it was all ready when DH gets home to finish up the plowing. I then grabbed the mail and did a bit of shoveling so we could get up the walkway to the deck and into the house.  And I did not run into anything....knock on wood.

Also run on over and visit Jan at Sew and Sow Farm.  She is sew much fun, and this is her 1st blogiversary.  Hop on over and check out her give away for 5 days.  Yes 5 whole days.  Isn't that awesome!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe you had to plow the snow. I really dislike cold weather. And then you went to work! I am glad you didn't have any accidents! I've had a few with the tractor, but my hubby has had more!

Well that looks like it might be fun, but I'm not sure?
