The plows managed to get through this evening!
It took a while – at the first attempt the plow managed about 5 meters up the hill before sliding back down and retreating back to the 28. We thought we had been abandoned again, but ably supported by a couple of little diggers, a bigger plow came back and made it up the hill! I imagine it will take a few passes before we are free to come and go easily but there was at least one car reversing out of the neighborhood this evening.
Life will slowly start to return to normal – schools, county governments and some other places are closed tomorrow, but hopefully everything will start to come back to life soon.
We now need to restart the car with the dead battery and dig the other one out of the garage!
