So I was wrong. We DID get snowed in. But I’m still not sorry (yet) for not charging the grocery stores and grabbing random stuff just in case the storm lasts for ever.
We tried to make the most of it: had fun with the dog and attempted to walk to the local CVS. This is what one of the main roads in our area looked like:
It was difficult to tell where the road was and where the sidewalks were. So we used the road.
There was an ambulance stuck in the intersection. We walked up to the driver to see if he needed help. He said he already called for help. We didn’t realize it at the time but he was taking someone to the hospital. I can’t imagine being that emergency patient and hearing the ambulance stop suddenly with no way to get anywhere.
The CVS was – surprisingly – open. So was the Giant although we didn’t see anyone inside. The only other thing open was Domino’s and those guys were even delivering. I hope people gave them some serious tips.
On our way back, the ambulance was still there but in the meantime another ambulance came by and they were transferring the person who was stuck in the first ambulance into the second one since there was no way the stuck ambulance was going to make it out. There were two trucks trying to pull the ambulance out of the snow bank. Not sure with what kind of success.
We made it back, felt like heroes, shoveled for the rest of the day, barely made a dent in the driveway.
