A silver lining to a snowstorm

You may remember a particularly troubling/annoying neighbor from a previous post.

He annoyed me once again about a week ago. He and his toddler of a child were walking up and down the halls the other night. The poor kid had no shirt on. This is significant because the temperature outside was 20 degress below zero. So the temperature in the hallway of my apartment building was probably about 50 degrees. He told me the kid needed “to spend some energy.” I wanted to say the kid also needs a shirt and shoes. But I didn’t.

Anyways, the snow was really coming down this week. But above that, it was super cold. Just yesterday, it was 30 degrees below zero. So, not only is it difficult to shovel a lot of snow, but it’s even more difficult when it’s life-threatenly cold.

I got home from work, and of course the parking lot of my building was not yet plowed, even though the worst of the blizzard had ended the night before. I had to go to work over three-foot snowbanks and come home from work over three-foot snowbanks.

So, I got my car into my garage and started shoveling. The guy in the garage next to mine was doing the same.

Annoying neighbor comes along with his snowblower — and blew most of the snow away from both of our garages! I still had snow to shovel, but not as much!

Thanks, annoying neighbor! You get a thumbs up!
