Call me Shovel Pro!

Today was one of those days where I wake up early to watch the snow fall. The news last night hinted  that about 20 inches of snow was expected between mid night last night to this morning 7am in the East Coast of the US. When this kind of weather comes around at the mid night, there is of course nothing we could do but just pray to hope that digging out my car to work would not be as bad as everyone had warned me. And then, of course, I felt very helpless first thing in the morning looking outside from my apartment window, barely noticing the existence of my car-_-

I was one of those lucky ones - My boss worried about my safety and let me work from home. Sipping hot cocoa and trying to figure out what was wrong with my laptop vpn, I couldn't help but keep thinking about when was a good time to actually go get a shovel and dig my car out.

I couldn't wait til tomorrow because the snow would get hardened tonight when the temperature drops. nor I could wait til my Prince Charming to arrive to give me a kiss on the cheek and help me dig out my car wtf

I made up my mind, walked to the hardware store down the block from my apartment complex and got a snow shovel! What a shame! I have been driving for almost 6 years and this was my first time getting a shovel? Maybe my Prince Charming really existed wtfwtf

Anyway it took me literally an hour to un-bury my car. It was weird because I actually found it quite calming to just stand against the strong wind and shovel around. You know, how rare do I get a chance to do this? This is a special work day :)

And if you don't believe me then look at the pictures I took as follows:
The main streets are already cleaned by our awesome City of Boston!
But on my street....

Though you are probably thinking it was still not a 'perfect' job but look at the other cars... NOT EVEN CLOSE LOL

Special Thank you to my rainboots
My good ol' pal :)

I hope you are having a cozy warm day!
