Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I got by with a little help from my friends.
I went out and pushed some snow off my car, maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of it. Then I went inside for a break. When I came out, someone had finished removing the snow and even cleared about a foot of snow behind it. No neighbors were outside, so I don't know who did that.
I backed the car up until the wheels started spinning. I couldn't go forward or back. Unfortunately, I was now blocking a neighbor's car. My appointment for therapy on my broken shoulder was less than a half-hour later, so from my car I called and said I couldn't make it.
The plow came and saw my predicament. The driver plowed around me, and the neighbor whose car I'd blocked easily removed the clumps of snow the plow had left in front of my tires. I drove back into my usual parking spot, called out a thank you to my neighbor, and went inside.
Before it got dark I went back outside and sprinkled Ice Melt from my front door to my car door. The condo fees are supposed to cover that, but it hadn't been done. Maybe the workers were going to come back to do it when the temperature dropped, but they usually do a poor job. Now I have peace of mind instead of wanting to give them a piece of my mind.
