Photo-Finish Friday -- Snow Pile

I thought you might be amused to see how much snow we've had.
We're obligated by bylaw to clear the street* in front of the house. The snow has to go somewhere. Usually that somewhere is a pile on the corner by the driveway.
It's melted a bit since I took this photo, but not so very much.
For the record, this is just from the sidewalk.

*I mean sidewalk. My misuse was pointed out to me. I'm correcting this way so everyone knows I'm an idiot.
Have You Chequed for Abundance?

It's new moon today, 12:11 a.m. MST, and that means it's time to write yourself an abundance cheque.
You have 24 hours from the time of the new moon in your area to get it done.
Remember, write the cheque out to yourself, leave the date blank, put "Paid in Full" in the amount areas, sign it "The Law of Abundance" and then put it away and forget about it.
Happy Abundance.

It brings back childhood memories... yeah, I don't miss it.

Leah J. Utas said...

Are they at least good memories, David?

The best thing about those snow piles? Watching them melt in the spring!
Thanks for the Abundance reminder!

Leah J. Utas said...

So true, df Bag Lady. This one will be around until May.
You're welcome, re: the cheque.

Terrie Farley Moran said...

Love the snow mountain!!

I haven't written an abundance check for a while. Perhaps today is the day.


Hilary said...

I just wrote it thanks to your caring reminders. :)

You sure do have an abundance of snow there.

Leah J. Utas said...

dfTerrie, thanks. Today is a great day to get back at it.

Hilary, good for you. Yes, we have been blessed by snow this season.

You have to clear the street? What no plows? At least here we just have to do the side walks. Although some of the side streets would benefit from a bylaw like that. Thanks for the reminder.

Leah J. Utas said...

Sorry. I meant to say sidewalk. The terms are not as interchangeable as I sometimes think they are.

My children would go nuts for that much snow. It always amazes me that people manage to live with it.

Cheque written, thanks.

Barbara Martin said...

There aren't huge snowpiles here, but I do recall them from childhood.

Thanks for the reminder on the Abundance Cheque. I'd forgotten while recuperating from physio this last week on strengthening my back.

Maybe there's a troll or something interesting living inside it. You never know!

Leah J. Utas said...

Messymimi, we don't know any better.

Barbara, they're as big as they ever were here. Hope you're back is okay.

Crabby, what a wonderful idea. I'll ask around.
