Actually, when you live on an unplow-able street, you learn to move on. As far as I know, all of our neighbors have survived in the past, and likely will this time.
It is in fact the second day of Christmas, and we are still enjoying ourselves. There was much fun, merriment, and enjoyment of presents and stockings yesterday. Today we've been able to just be happy that we are so lucky, and to get a new appreciation for things we received. I have spent the day feeling especially cozy, in my new fleece top that The Tim picked out for me. Jetsam has been busy with his new catnip toy. The Tim carried his new messenger bag to work, and declared it a successful gift, which pleased me greatly.
I'm not sure I've ever shown this picture before. This is one of the very first Christmas decorations we had when we got married. At the time, The Tim was in graduate school at Notre Dame, and we had a nice (albeit very small) apartment in Married Student Housing, One of his fellow students mentioned how she made a wreath for her apartment door. We were inspired to do the same, so we went to a local craft store (G.L. Perry? I don't remember), and bought the wreath, a roll of ribbon, and the little ornament. A couple of hours later, Voila!, we had a Christmas wreath!
This has been put away and pulled out for use again for the last 32 years. I sincerely doubt that we paid even $10.00 for the supplies, but it's traveled the country with us, always going on the front door of our apartments and now our house. Every year when we pull it out, I am first of all amazed that it is still in such good shape, and secondly glad to know that the wreath - and us - are still around to make Christmastime merry.
Street plow? Homemade Christmas wreath?
For me at least, it's a no-brainer.
