Thank you for clearing driveway, cul-de-sac

Imagine my mood when the snow started to fall as though a higher power wanted to teach me a lesson!

Thank you for clearing driveway, cul-de-sac

Just before the latest snowfall I remarked to my strata council, that it’s unreasonable to expect the elderly to clear the sidewalks more than once when the snow gets dumped back on the sidewalks by the snowblower!

Imagine my mood when the snow started to fall as though a higher power wanted to teach me a lesson! My poor husband geared himself up for the task of clearing the driveway, but returned back inside with the greatest smile on his face. He told me that somebody had cleared the driveway for us! Yaah, there was an angel in our area. Soon after, my son-in-law found out that one of our neighbours had come by with his ATV/snowplow and cleared not just our driveway, but also the cul-de-sacs in the area as well! Thank you so much for doing this for us! You made my day and prevented my husband from getting hurt.
