In case you didn’t hear, we’re in the midst of a blizzard. Some forecasters are predicting up to 24 inches of snow. What the actual total is really isn’t that important. I think for purposes of this reminder, a bunch is a measurement that works. We’re getting a bunch of snow which reminds us of the importance of digging out our fire hydrants when the storm ends.
I know, the last thing people want to do after spending hours shoveling snow is to find more snow to shovel.
The thing that helps me whenever I’m digging out a hydrant is to keep looking back to our house, just imagine it on fire and ask yourself – would you rather have the fire department digging out this hydrant or putting out the fire in your house? I also have a song worm in my head – Urgent! ! From Foreigner .
Come up with your song to keep you motivated.
We wrote a story on this subject last Groundhog day. The irony is not lost.
