Late post and snow stories

Suzanne tagged me some time ago for the "You make My Day" Award. I will admit to being a bit surprised, but will say a big "Thanks!" Since I am so late in posting about it, I might wind up tagging someone who has already been hit, so am going to skip that part. If are reading this and want to play, leave me a note and post on your blog about who makes your day!
Today started out just fine and wonderful. It involved baking cookies for a couple of packages I am mailing to college students tomorrow. I also made granola yesterday for one of the boxes. (The other box isn't too crazy about granola, but will be getting other yummy things.) Then I worked on an overdue post, but saved it for later while I took Hubband out to the airport. Of course since I was already out and way past the other side of town I ran a few errands on my way home. Unfortunately when I got home, the very thing I have been a bit worried about happened. My car got stuck in the snow in our driveway. We have had a fair amount of snow, the wind has blown a fair amount more onto the drive, and we haven't really shoveled it much this year. Normally this isn't a problem for my car, but the carpet cleaners got stuck last week and we had to push them out, so that chewed up the snow quite a bit. Then a friend almost got stuck as he slid around on Sunday, so that chewed some more up. (The propane delivery truck had no trouble yesterday, but I am sure that all that weight was the saving factor.) Well, thank goodness for very kind neighbors and their tractor to pull me out of the drift I had managed to slide on/into and get very stuck. He also scooped off a bucket load of snow on his way out of the drive. If the snow we are getting tonight doesn't cover it up, maybe you'll get a picture of it tomorrow.
Oh, have I ever mentioned that we have a steep slope from the road down to our garage? That doesn't always help either. I'll leave you with a picture of our driveway last spring, without any snow. Not at all what it looks like now and not the best view of the slope, but it is green!

The whole time I was reading about your snow troubles, I was looking at the picture of your house and thinking, "What snow? I don't see any snow."

I guess it would help if I read the *whole* story, huh? lol
