I swear this happened. I have the video to prove it.

Remember when I was whining about the mailbox being buried in snow? When I said the snow banks at the bus stop were up to the bottom of the stop sign?

I said, in that entry,

If you don’t hear from me for the next few days, please come to Angelborough with a shovel. Or maybe a front-end loader.

And then I didn’t post for a couple of days.

One of my amazing blog-readers came through, big time.

Yes, that’s an actual front-end loader, at about eight o’clock at night, attempting to widen our street enough that two bicycles can pass one another despite the snow banks. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a good shot with my camera.

Thank you to whomever it was that sent help. The Philangelus family is in your debt.
