My friend and neighbor Chavis taking his son B for a little ride the morning after the big storm last week. It was a great chance to catch up with a lot of neighborhood folks. Everyone was out shoveling, salting and chipping! This ice/snow amalgam set like cement. So lots of chat and cheerful commiseration. I even exchanged a few pleasant words with the guy on the block we think of as The Grumpy Neighbor. This is such a friendly block, that he sticks out like a sore thumb. He never makes eye contact, smiles or waves, let alone says Hi but there he was out salting his path. I asked him where he got that brand of salt he was using, and he told me! Progress.
