Neighborly Good Deeds

Jim A., Dan O., Sue A., and Tanya O.
February 9, 2013
I live in a great neighborhood where nearly everyone is friendly and helpful. This morning as I was checking blogs and reading the paper, I glanced out the front window to find Dan O. shoveling my walks and driveway. When I opened the door to thank him, I noticed that his wife Tanya and another couple were out shoveling, too. The two couples had done their own walks and drives, and then joined forces to shovel the walks of my next door neighbor and the elderly lady across the street as well as mine. It warmed my heart to see their neighborly good deeds. 

My area is due to receive an additional 8 inches of snow today. Even though it causes some inconveniences, every flake is welcome.

Update: February 11, 2013

This storm brought my area's snow-water equivalent up to 88 percent. Hopefully, more moisture-heavy storms will drop snow in the mountains and in Fremont County in the remaining months of Winter.

  1. I seriously miss living somewhere that gets regular snow. I'm thinking this afternoon should maybe include some cookie baking - nothing like warm chocolate chips to thank someone for shoveling show and help replace the calories they burned off duing the work. g

  2. How wonderful when others give of their time and effort to help out! I always try to "pay it forward" in some way when someone does a good deed for me.

    Enjoy your snow. How I wish I could just spend a week or 2 in a place that really gets snow! Perhaps someday. Right now we avoid it like the plague. Us Southerners just don't have a clue how to act or drive in that stuff!

    Happy knitting! Looks like the weather is perfect to sit where it is warm and kit away.

  5. How wonderful to have such nice neighbors. We used to live in a neighborhood like that. Our current neighborhood is nice, just not that nice. I know the snow causes a lot of problems, but I miss snow.

Ken has the snowblower ready to whiz down the ramp. Yeah. Parked right by the front door. sheesh

  10. That is so heart-warming. We can be so grateful for such appreciated acts of love. This storm has quite a bit of moisture in it, so like you, I say, "Bring it on."

  11. Hey Nancy the snow is pretty but can stop us in our tracks. I am so glad you have very nice neighbors. Where I live no one thinks about others, it is like do for yourself or it will not get done.

    I have a porch with no covering and at the present time 14" of snow I might have to build a snowman. We are dealing with freezing rain at the moment.

  12. Yay for good neighbors! I'd welcome a good 6-8" snow... but not this coming Saturday. Not for the gala.
