It has been an exhausting day watching all that snow fall. Lots of snow. Tomorrow we will watch from the window as Mom starts to dig out and find our car. Mom paid a neighbor's teenage son to dig out ... and mom kindly shared our snow shovel with other residents of our condo ... total strangers. Mom said where she lived, and leave the shovel by the frog outside the door. It's there now, having been used by about a dozen or so residents of Victoria Crossings. We think our Mom went to the Pet store this afternoon and got our Christmas presents. Our stockings were empty this morning, and now they are full.
