So Today is the third day of Blizzard Charlotte (which is also being referred to as Nemo for some reason). On Friday I already posted a little bit about what happened in the early parts of that day, when people we're preparing for the storm. Normally my father parks his car in the driveway, and my mom and sister keep their cars in the garage, but on Friday my mom parked her car up in the yard (we couldn't keep a car in the driveway because then it would get hit when the driveway got plowed) and let my dad put his car in the garage, because her car is the highest up and she figured it would be able to get over the snow easier. Meanwhile nextdoor at my uncle's house the cars the three cars that normally park in his driveway (there are five cars in his household, but his garage only fits two) were parked up onto the hill near his driveway. A little later that day, my family contacted one of our neighbors to see if he would plow our driveway. Friday evening was when it started snowing. The neighbor ended up coming twice and plowing our driveway, creating a rather big mound of snow where he pushed the snow to, burying my downed basketball hoop (my dad put it over on its side before Hurricane Sandy hit to prevent it from blowing over). That being said, by yesterday morning the driveway and the whole yard was all covered, it was like the driveway had never been plowed (except for the visible mound at the top of the driveway where the snow had been plowed, which looked a bit like a sand dune). This is not due to any lack of effort on our neighbor's part, it was because the snow was falling so fast.
Yesterday morning I had a dream that seems quite out of place for a blizzard. I dreamt that my cousin and I were in my kitchen reading some paper that a tutor gave us, eventually my cousin got in a little argument with the tutor. After that argument my cousin asked me (the tutor had now mysteriously disappeared as sometimes happens in dreams where one person is present and is then gone without leaving) if I wanted to go outside and play basketball, but I told him that it was too hot and he agreed, so then I got up and went to get some ice pops which I thought were in the freezer in the garage but which were actually on the counter because my cousin had already brought them up. I grabbed an ice pop, and went to cut it open with a knife and then I woke up, remembered there was a blizzard going on and thought it was pretty weird to be dreaming about ice pops during a blizzard. When I awoke,the snow was high all over the place. My mother's car was buried in snow, it looked like a big mound and pretty much all I could see of the car was the side mirror poking out. My mother was in the living room sitting on the couch looking out the window watching what was going on in my uncle's yard, so I watched too. The guy that normally plows my uncle's driveway (and the first part of the driveway, which my family's driveway and my uncle's driveway both connect into) was there with someone else (possibly his wife or maybe a worker), there was one guy in a backhoe/bobcat thing, lifting up the snow and dropping it in the yard, and another person behind him in a truck with a plow (at one point the guy in the plow almost backed up into the plow truck), eventually the truck left and the guy in the backhoe kept working but then he stopped and got out. We saw him talk on the phone to somebody, stand there for a while and then walk down the driveway. We figured the backhoe either ran out of fuel or got stuck (we would later find out that he ran out of fuel).
Looking out the windows I could see snow all over the place, it was very high too. I already mentioned my mothers car being covered, but that wasn't all that was covered. The three cars parked in my uncle's yard (my cousins' cars and my uncle's mother-in-law's car) were all buried under the snow, all we could see of them were three wavy bumps, that looked kind of like pyramids.
Throughout the day we tried to figure out who would plow our driveway. Our neighbor who had plowed before was working that day, plus he had his own driveway to take care of and his truck was probably too small to plow all the snow in our driveway. We also considered using the guy who my uncle used, but my father figured that he would be expensive (partly because he probably would've had to use the backhoe). We also considered using these guys that we had used back in 2011 (when there were a large number of snow storms in quick succession that piled up a large amount of snow) to clear out our driveway with snowblowers and then plow it.
