and it also happens to be a Saturday. Could it get any better than this?
With each passing day, we’re getting closer and closer to Spring. Despite the fact that it will also be allergy season for me, Spring is most definitely welcome to arrive sooner rather than later.
It’s still cold outside. Thank goodness it’s sunny to make the frigid cold winter more bearable but I do feel like its dragged on long enough. I’ve become eternally grateful for the invention of snowpants. I don’t know what I ever did without them!
Tomorrow, it’ll be March. Wow.
Now, we’ve had a few warmer days that have helped some of the snow to melt. The only problem is, many storm drains remained covered or blocked. So, where is all that lovely wet stuff to go? You see, I bring that up for a very good reason.
I’m one of those people you’ll see randomly cleaning storm drains. It’s simple really and I don’t need any special tools or tricks. I like going for walks especially on the warmer winter days and when I do, I keep my eye out for blocked storm drains that need just a little bit of help. Sometimes, I can see the storm drain but it’s obstructed by a plop of snow and there’s a big puddle nearby. So, with my trusty foot that’s wearing my trusty boot (I LOVE my BOGS), I swipe that hunk of snow out of the way. Sometimes, I make a path for the wet stuff to drain. WOOSH….instant success. It doesn’t take very much but in that one moment, I may have just made a difference.
It’s not the first time I’ve talked about cleaning storm drains but I think it’s worth mentioning every so often. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it betters your community.
So, on this last day of February, here’s a ThingsThatWeDo.com challenge for you: what small act can you do to make your community a little better?
