Thanks to all the snow we’ve received in the last week, parking on my street is a real mess. While the street itelf is actually bare in spots, the strip along the sidewalk where cars park is a morass of unplowed snow and ice. And unfortunately for me that’s where I parked my car Monday afternoon. I was able to ignore the problem yesterday by getting a ride to work from Mary, but this morning I figured it was time to get my car back into operation. At one point I almost gave up, but after 45 minutes of pushing, crawling around, and general wheel spinning shenanagins my car was free to roam the streets of Spokane again. Now if I can just figure out a better place to park tonight when I get home.
