Weekend Recap

I am very glad this weekend is over!! Work was SO SLOW on Saturday and CRAZY today! I feel like I worked my tail off! We got a lot of snow on Saturday and it was very pretty to watch from the window at work. Wish I could have played in it! My puppy Sadie had a blast, according to my mom, since she stayed with her all weekend!

So, I live a good distance away from work, about 40 minutes or so, and snow does not make that a fun drive! It only took me about 10 minutes longer to get home on Saturday night until I reached my drive way. Now, I guess people in my neighborhood don't go anywhere on the weekends because there was hardly any tire marks in the snow! This made it very hard to maneuver through the neighborhood! Then, when I got to my cove it was even worse! My driveway is on a slight incline, no major hill or anything, so I head up my driveway and get stuck not even 4 feet up. So I put it in reverse and go back down then try to go faster back up the drive. Well same thing. When I gave it gas, my rear would just swing to the side. Now, its not like I have a small car! I drive a Yukon, too bad it isn't 4 wheel drive! That would have been very useful this weekend! So I proceed to back up and floor it up my drive way for about 10 minutes and then decide this obviously isn't working. But there was NO WAY I was leaving my car in the street to ice over when I had to get back up in the early morning and go back to work. So I think to myself that I need to shovel this snow off my driveway. The only problem is, I have no shovel. So I take my mop (yes, my MOP!) and proceed to sweep the snow from side to side. No telling what my neighbors where thinking! I bet it was a sight to see! So after I "mopped" most of the snow to the side of the driveway, I continued to go up and down my driveway until I landed in the garage! FINALLY! Luckily, I didn't have much of an issue backing out today. However, I will say, most of my drive this morning was on solid ice! So scary! I drove 20 mph the whole way! It took me an hour and a half to get to work! I am SO GLAD the roads were clear tonight!! And I must say, my arm and back muscles are so sore from "mopping" the snow off my driveway! What a great workout! Ha!!


  1. I'm glad you made it safely! Snow and ice can be so scary to drive it. And if it makes you feel any better, I cleared my car off with a spatula.

  2. Atleast you know how to improvise :)

  3. Haha, that is hilarious!!! Today is the first day my car left the
    garage and I was scared! My driveway is a hill and it was stilled icy.

  4. Yeah I prefer just to stay inside when it snows and watch and laugh at all the funny people like you ...lol!

    You're too funny :)

  5. If it makes you feel any better I don't have a shovel and I live in NY!

  6. love the mopping the driveway! I would have done the same thing. I think we have a shovel though, just not a big one. the mop idea seems to me more effective... (or im just being a blond)! glad you made it safe!
