The side of the house is somewhat protected, still the snow piled up prettily. I measured 14" in the back this morning. Seen more, impressive nevertheless.
It may look a tad narrow, but it's navigable. Will go and get gritty litter later to sand it, since shoveling is problematic. Where to put it, and the surface is not quite paved, partly gravel.
We have cleared, and with the sun out, the melt is starting where it counts.
We want the sidewalk in front of our place to be where tired walkers go "Oh, thank gods. A clear stretch." Good karma to be kind to pedestrians.
Icicles along the eaves, knocking them down as best we can, avoiding impalement.
Roads are largely cleared, so we went to Hong Kong Tea House, D got black pepper chicken and pot stickers. I had shrimp paste on bell pepper and sticky rice in lotus leaf. The latter I always eat one there, take two home. They travel well, and they are such a treat for me. Both feeling much better after a light, nutritious lunch. Aromatic, which just barely got through to my beleaguered sinuses, enough to make a difference. The lotus leaf joins the compost pile, the magic ingredient, I'm sure.
