It’s the little things in life

There hasn’t been much excitement in our lives since a year ago when COVID-19 reared its ugly head.
Staying home as much as possible has become the norm.
The most action we’ve had this winter has been the 4-6 inch snowfall our area received Feb. 4.
The Outdoors Guy and I live in a country condo association on the outskirts of La Crosse. As the snow continued to fall and the wind kicked up, we wondered if our snowplow guys would still come on the 4th because of all the blowing and drifting. Finally, about 8 p.m., Thursday evening, we saw their headlights at the condos below us and knew they were on the job.
By the time they reached our condo, it was about 9 p.m. Bored out of our minds, we stood by the window and watched Matt perform his magic in his large pickup truck as we relaxed in the comfort of our home. In less than 10 minutes, he had our double-driveway cleared and was on to the next condo. There are 50 units in our association, so it’s no small feat.
Mostly, it’s oh-so-nice to have the job done with no effort on The Outdoors Guy’s part. Because of his battle with pancreatic cancer, one of his side effects from chemo is not being able to withstand the cold like he used to. I have back problems making shoveling a big no-no for me. So, it’s a great relief to have snow removal done for us.  
After Matt plows, has dad, Pat, follows up, clearing snow close to the garages with a small tractor. On Feb. 4, Pat was running late, so we didn’t get to see him work his magic as he zig-zags back and forth at lightning speed! We left our outdoor lights on for him. Bob woke up about 1 a.m. The job was finished. Nice!!!
But, one thing is for sure. If things get any more exciting around here, we honestly don’t know if we can take it!!!
