It has been quite a few days on Cape Cod. The snow began falling around noon on Monday January 26, picked up in intensity by 7 pm and for the next 30 hours blew like crazy. My Cape Cod friends all said they couldn't sleep because the winds were so loud all night. The next day my Syracuse bestie, Carrie Lazarus of WSYR TV asked me to upload a video for her news audience of what I was seeing out my window. That explains the Syracuse sweatshirt in the video below.
By daybreak today, the snow finally stopped and then the cleanup began. The trouble is, the small army of pickup trucks contracted by the town were no match for the 23 inches of snow that officially fell in Harwich. This would be a job for the big boys. And there aren't many big boys in Harwich -- at least not the plowing kind.
Luckily for me, there's a nurse who lives in my neighborhood and because that nurse was needed at work, the big municipal plows arrived on my street at noon. My wonderful neighbor named Bert snowblowed the heck out of my driveway and liberated me from my home.
