Thankful

I’ve never seen anything like it.
Coming from the Maritimes, I’m used to snow.  Last year at this time, it was piled higher than my kitchen window.  I’ve seen blizzards that have dropped over a Metre at once.
But yesterday was absolute insanity.
We got about 40 cm of snow in Southern Ontario, and I drove home from work in the middle of it.
The first time I got stuck was pulling out of the parking garage downtown.  Luckily, there were two men shoveling across the street who quickly pushed me out.
The second time was at the grocery store.   I’d barely gotten in my car and someone showed up to give me a push.
The third time was the challenge.  Our subdivision never got plowed because the plow itself either broke or got stuck (I heard both versions) and hadn’t budged for hours.  But two women and a man helped me for over 30 minutes, until I managed to get into the driveway of yet another helpful neighbor.
Not once did I have to ask for help.
I am amazed by the kindness of Kingston.
