We went over to the house yesterday for a final walk-through. There are a few items left for the builder to fix, but we were pleased that they had plowed the driveway and a path to the service door. Here are Ed and Ron (our realtor) shoveling a path to the front door. The storm that was predicted last night turned out to be a bust (thankfully). We are planning on closing on the house this afternoon and the movers will come tomorrow. We don't have any idea where they will park the vans. We went to Home Depot to buy a mail box. Three people asked us if the snow plows had run over our mail box, too. They suggested waiting till the thaw to put up a mail box. We might be picking up our mail at the post office for a while.
We saw two bright red cardinals in the trees behind our house. They reminded us of spring, despite the deep snow surrounding the house.
