Did I fool anyone? Even a little bit?
When we plow snow from the area in back of our house (and main entrance), we have to make a rather sharp left hand turn to go farther back and around our semi-circular driveway. It's a tight turn with our 9' wide snowplow blade and Papa Pea has been threatening (for about 20 years) to cut down a tree that's too close to the plow path.
The tree was removed yesterday and the turn is now considerably widened. He dropped the tree exactly where he wanted it, and we should now be able to make the turn without the usual "back and forthing."
Just in time for the predicted heavy snow coming this afternoon through tomorrow. But will we really get it? So far, all the appreciable amounts of snow have gone south of us. What does Old Man Winter have against all of us snow lovers up here in northernmost Minnesota?
