I was not psychically prepared for the amount of snow currently on our house and in our yard

I drove two hours total to another state to buy a snowblower at the only Home Depot that had them in stock because I do not have the power to shovel again tomorrow for the 7 hours I did out of the last 24

Anyway, fuck Home Depot corporate, what a terrible company, and solidarity with retail workers in winter

@alex I’m recovering from shoveling. I, too, was unprepared

@alex OMG!!! Or should I say SNOWMG! I am so fascinated with snow and snow accumulation as I am from the land of no snow.

@alex @franciecashman i already cleared it once so my wife could go to work, and this damn driveway got itself covered again!

@remulacfrommars @alex OMG! WOW! I feel like you should make a snowman to greet her for when she comes home.

@franciecashman @remulacfrommars I didn’t do the front path. Sorry, postman, that’s an evening project
