The tractor won't start

We are supposed to get 6-10 inches of snow by sometime tomorrow. Allison decided to build a snowman. Clarence went outside to take some pictures for me and helped her stack the snowballs to make him.

He convinced her to give the snowman a high five. Let it be noted for the record: she didn't want to.

After that, she had just enough time to do a little sledding in the front yard before dinner.

We'll see if we're snowed in tomorrow or not. I'm really hoping Clarence can figure out what's wrong with the tractor because I don't miss shoveling our driveway by hand. When it's snow covered, the driveway is about 3/4 mile long. In good weather, the length is about 250 feet. I wonder what the scientific explanation is for that phenomenon?

At least now we have a couple additional helpers who weren't big enough to help in the days before the tractor.

  1. Ugh! That is a long driveway to shovel! I believe it gets longer at shoveling time because the depth of the snow has to be added to the length of the's a very complicated formula, but you get my drift. Get it? Drift? lol!

  2. Oh, I hope you get the tractor working! Shoveling is alot of work!!!!

    My kids are hoping for some snow to come and stay around for awhile!

  3. We have no need for a tractor here but I hope yours gets to running soon!!

    I am hoping it will snow when my son goes to Mrs. Rabe's for Christmas. That will be fun for him!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
