The Zoom link has been sent for the free-motion class today. Dare I say that there are 100 people signed up? It will be crazy, but I've got it all planned out, so we should be good. I still have some prep work to do this morning, but I have plenty of time.
I'm getting a wee bit later start to today because I heard this BANG in the night and then BEEP BEEP BEEP. That can only mean one thing. The backhoe is back to clear out the street. OH NO!! The plow had passed earlier in the day. They left a small windrow at the end of the driveway, which I had to remove first thin in the morning.
Well, my e-mail about the previous storms got through because the driver spent time cleaning up, and at the end of the session, the driveway looked like this.

OK -- so I didn't do the best job shoveling the driveway, but the end of my tiny opening in the massive windrows is now completely clear of all snow. And so were the three driveways to my left that also got hammered the last two times.
Those mounds of snow are NOT sitting in my driveway -- they are in the street, but that's the city's problem. It'll just take a long time for them to melt. But as long as I can get out, I don't care. It's a vast curve, and those mounds of snow extend about 10 - 15 feet past the curb into the street.
I'll be sending another note to the city to THANK them for listening. I certainly do NOT mind shoveling some snow, but not what they dumped the last two times.
That happened at 3 PM, and it took a while to get back to sleep. Perhaps I was excited? I still have to finish shoveling the driveway so the sun can melt all the ice. It won't take long - we just had a lot of stuff going on yesterday.
But here's a disturbing thing that happened in the backyard. I don't know if it happened at night, but when I went out to check on Murphy's business, I spotted this in the pond.
