Watertown, MA. February, 2013

Welcome. Well, sort of. After Nemo the Blizzard took his sweet old time passing through the area (snow and wind from 9am Friday until 11am Saturday), the denizens of Hillside Road emerged, shovels in hand. A first two-hour shoveling, through drifts as high as four feet, carved this path from my door to the street. (Never mind that continuing winds and passing snowplows covered it up again.) A late-afternoon encore found my beloved neighbor David showing me how to work his snowblower...allowing me to liberate my driveway and car. Then I helped neighbor Don open up his driveway, too. Raking leaves, shoveling snow and yard sales -- the three times a year we’re sure to connect with our good neighbors.
