How's everyone faring? We're running out of space to pile snow. Had the snow removed from our roof $300 which is a good deal, I guess. Have heard reports of people charged up to $1K. We were afraid of our roof collapsing under the weight of 4-5 feet of snow.
Neighbour across the road their snow blower died so we & other neighbours have been helping them keep the driveway clear. Teenager next door removed the snow from out deck & dug a path so the oil delivery guy could fill our tank.... If he ever gets here. Of course the refill area is at the back of our house.
Hope everyone is staying warm & safe.
