Winter morning, interrupted



We got some snow last night, so this morning I was up early, shoveling and taking pictures.










After a while it started to get light out ....




I took some snow in for the foster kittens to play with :




And I just happened to be taking  a photo of Sodapop looking out the front window when the snowplow came by:




And deliberately swerved to knock over my newspaper tube.




Yep, he definitely swerved:



Now, SOME might say it's because of the flag I fly:



Or maybe it's the rainbow horse in the front yard that angered him:


Myself?  I'm reserving judgment.  We'll just see how long it takes for the town to send somebody out to repair the damage.

I love your flag and rainbow horse! I wish I could have known you when I lived in your area. But sorry about your newspaper tube.

Did you report it to his supervisor? Might not do any good - but should be on record .

I emailed the town highway department yesterday morning and included the pic of where the plow had freaking SWERVED to hit the tube. (Honestly? I think maybe he was trying to take out the mailbox and just wasn't QUITE accurate enough with the plow blade. Either that or he'd just dropped a lit cigarette - ha.) Within a half an hour the highway superintendent responded that he would send someone out to fix the damage, and when I got home last night, the tube had been fixed. Voila!

glad they fixed it so fast. I hope they had a word with that driver.

I was wondering about the driver not realizing that the tire tracks gave him away, but James thinks that he was making a "hate" statement and just didn't care. The world's makin' me crazy lately......I COULD turn on the TV to take my mind off things but...........AAAGGGGHHHHHH!!!! IT'S WHAT'S-HIS-NAME AGAIN WITH THE HAIRDO!!!!!!

(I'll correct that: It's not a hairdo; it's a hairdon't.)

Ginny, I've becoming an expert on switching channels very, very quickly - before I have a rage stroke. I've begun watching The Waltons every night at seven, and I swear that show is saving my life right now. Ha.
