digging out

Got out of work a couple hours early, so I hurried home and spent an hour or so digging out our plowed in car. I tried my best to dispose of the snow in a way that wouldn't just make it someone else's problem, mostly piling it against our house and in the strip between the sidewalk and the street. This fastidiousness greatly bothered one of my neighbors who harangued me for ten minutes, demanding that I should just dump the snow in the street for the plows to clean up. I laughed, thinking she was joking, which made her think I was even stupider than she'd previously assessed. I didn't have it in me to argue that any snow the plow pushed away was justgoing to end up blocking in someone else's car or street. But that's South Philly for you. Most of them will just leave their car (or cars) buried until the snow melts.

I, on the other hand, will, weather permitting, now be able to drive all over creation on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, making all my expected visits. Not to mention finally getting some Christmas shopping done.
