I would be inclined this might be more the description of Constance :-) May both of you have a Happy Valentine's Day along with all the folks on this board. Hug your sweetie whoever it may be!

    We got bored sitting around the house and we hopped on our three snowmobiles and started cruising the roads this evening.

    Well after all was said and done I got a total of 3 ft of snow at my house from yesterdays blizzard....I was so happy about that till I got up this morning and my neighbor who plows me out called and said his plow truck was stuck and he didn't know when he would be up to get me out. This is 24" of fresh snow since he last plowed me out Wednesday morning...
    So I told him, "don't worry about it" Just get here whenever you can...
    Here comes the good part..I decided to go out and start shoveling my car out and figured it wouldn't take me too long so I threw on some sweatpants and some rain boots and went outside...I had been out there for a half hour and went to open my door and I had locked myself out of my house!!!!
    The key that I normally have outside for these types of emergencies, I had just brought it in the morning before because I knew it would get buried in this snowstorm in its secret location and I wanted to put a new keychain on it and put it back in a different place NEXT time I went outside. When I realized my spare key was on my kitchen counter and there was no way I could get in my house without breaking an expensive window, I hiked down to my neighbors in 2 ft of snow up to my thighs down a 500 ft driveway and I was cold! I called a locksmith from my neighbors and he said he wouldn't come to my house until it was plowed out...I said well do you have snowshoes? He said " I'm 70 years old and I'm not throwing on snowshoes. Just call me when you get plowed out and I will gladly come up and unlock your door for you"...
    5 hours later I was able to get plowed out and locksmith was able to get me in my house in all of two minutes.....It was an expensive morning!

    But I learned some valuable lessons this morning...regardless of how long you plan to be outside..dress warmly and leave a spare house key in your glove compartment...(where I live there is no need to lock my car at night so that should work out for me in the future)

    Although this morning I was not a happy camper, when it all boils down I'm healthy and I'm alive...and thats all thats important...and this snow is so beautiful!
    Life is Good!

    As long as there are no more of these setbacks I'll see everyone Saturday at 12:00. Looking forward to it.

    Our Postmaster did the same this - lock herself out. If you are not comfortable with hiding a key outside or leaving it in an unlocked car - a company by the name of Supra makes a locking mountable container with a changable push button combination to put a key in. It is similar with what the real estate people put on a door knob to show a house except it is mountable to the side of a building. At less than $25 well worth the investment.

    When we were shown our house before we bought it - there was one here. We just changed the combination when we bought the house and put in our new key (we did have the locks changes). No duplicates for the kids, neighbors watching the dog, etc - we love it.

    pumkin = differential = that big round thing under the car on the pipe between the two rear tires.

    And I understand... if you don't have a Jeep, it's hard to understand what a shovel is for as there is little need.

    As I understand, "tow truck" is the term the rest of you use...
