I finally realized first hand why I might need a shovel when living in an apartment.
- The maintenance here generally is subpar
- It snowed approximately 2 feet last night
Anyway, I attempted at noon to dig out our cars, after 30 minutes I had broken my dustpan and my broom. I managed to clear a good deal of snow off the cars, but there was still 2 feet of snow around and in front of the cars. And I was disgusted.
Luckily when I went out to beg for a shovel, around 6:00 PM, a neighbor, Keith, was kind enough to lend me one and help me dig out the cars. He then went out of his way to help me shovel out the cars. This encourages me to make an effort to talk to my neighbors more often.
