Yer crackin' me up!
Posted by Markiesnana
Because of 6 weekly storms, our drain gutters were mounded up with ice and covered with snow.
My husband got out the ladder and a hammer and hatchet and trudged through the knee-deep snow, moving the ladder along as he worked.
He chipped off large chunks of ice, leaving the gutters in better condition to handle the icy rain storm that was coming up next.
At one point, he put his hammer down once, losing it until Spring comes along!
He got the gutters done, but that left huge chunks of ice all around our doorstep. Trying to walk there would have been like trying to balance on a rocky breakwater at the beach.
I got out there and shoveled up some of the recently dislodged ice chunks to clear the way.
Not complaining, but everyone here is really going to welcome Spring this year!
