Not *exactly* a "snowninja".
Dent calls in to work. Plant closed? HELL YEAH. They finally got smart. Or, what is more likely, even the BOSS couldn't get out of his driveway this time.
Next step: I call the school. Is the school closed? HELL YEAH AGAIN! BONUS! Of course, now, it's a matter of digging out a bit. So I grab the shovel and start clearing the back steps. Despite the fact we've nailed down little tread things, and Dent puts sand out there for traction, it's still pretty easy to take a nose-dive off the steps if you aren't paying attention.
I turn, and catch Dent in the midst of clearing off his truck. Or assulting it with a washer-brush, one of the two. Ski mask and all. You gonna mug frosty the snowman, Dent? ;)
Mr. Landparent was out scraping the road a little bit, along with some folks' driveways. We were much appreciative.
This snow doesn't seem as bad as the one that hit on Christmas. Of course, it hasn't stopped yet, either. And there's ice coming (supposedly--if the forecast doesn't change AGAIN).
Perhaps later, when my boots dry, I'll go take some pictures of the "crick" out back.
