blizzard after effectsPosted: December 21, 2009
while today (a MUCH NEEDED day off) should be all about finishing up some crafty projects, instead it will be all about attempting to shovel out car #2.
i am not amused.
all i know is i am amazing. you don’t understand the workings of ‘hood parking unless you’ve lived a winter in the ‘hood with on-street parking. it’s vicious. you can shovel for hours and then leave your space only to have it scooped up by some jerk right after you leave. i learned my lessons the hard way last year and you have to only shovel enough for your own car. but now that i have the two working vehicles i have to shovel out the 2 spots and move one car to the middle of the 2 spaces when i take one of the cars to run errands. it’s a bit of a pain, but it’s completely worth it. this way a car cannot fit in front of you or behind you. and you must also possess mad parallel parking skills, of which i’ve become a master. snow parking in the ‘hood – it’ll toughen up the girliest of girls.
i may have gotten a little carried away with the shovel and shoveled too much space in front of the white car. i might have to fill that in later.
what will inevitably happen is the city plow will come on by while i’m out paying bills and completely ruin everything. ruin my strategically planned mathematical parking space perfection. just you watch.
