In the meantime, here are some pics of our "snow event" of this past weekend. We got about 35 inches of snow! This is the back yard from our slider. Good thing we have one because we couldn't open either door.
And here is the front of the house. That's my hubby's Yaris waiting to be shovelled out.
This is my hubby digging his way around to the front of the house. We do not own a snowblower because our driveway is pretty small and we are both in good shape but this one did test the limits! LOL! Took us about 2 hours to get things cleared up. There were a few sore muscles the next day but we are no worse for wear.
Of course, on the day before the storm (Thursday), my front loader washing machine decides to DIE...with a load of towels in it...prior to the spin cycle. I called the repair guy and told him what I heard (an elephant was inside my washer trying to get out!!) and he diagnosed over the phone that one of the spider bars had snapped and that the repair would START at $300. We decided given the age of the machine (8 years old) that a new machine should come to my house. Soooo, on Sunday, after the shoveling out, we went to Home Depot to look at washing machines. The snow shoveling didn't kill DH but the cost of the washer almost gave him a heart attack! Needless to say, I could have bought lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of fabric with that money but I guess clean clothes are a little more important( but just a little).
We ended up with a Samsung ( I thought they only made TVs but apparently they are the #1 washer on the market right now) and it arrived today. Isn't she a beauty?? She sings little songs and everything. Now to figure out how she works. Hmmmmmmm!
I'm off to do many loads of laundry. Catch you on the weekend! Stop by for Think Pink's debut.
