I’m already up to 5 feet of snow on both ends of my driveway. Where will I put it all!?

Ishpeming, MichiganJanuary 18th, 2017 – After the storm that we had last Tuesday and Wednesday I found my driveway buried in nearly 2 feet of snow. Naturally, when you don’t have a snowblower you don’t feel like shoveling that much snow! That’s quite a load. It’s hard on your back and your body in general. There were drifts in my driveway that were half of my height… which is almost 3 feet. The plow bank at the end of my driveway in front of the road was also nearly 3 feet. It was wet and heavy. I cleared just enough to get out so my car wouldn’t get stuck.

Much to my surprise when I arrived at home after work last Wednesday night I found my driveway and sidewalk had been nearly cleared! I noticed that the tracks from the snowblower that had cleared my driveway came from my neighbors house. I thought that was very generous. This isn’t something that happens everyday. This was wonderful! It was so nice of my neighbors to help me out. Especially since I didn’t ask. A friendly helping hand goes a long way. I’d like to thank my kind neighbors for helping me out.. which I did. Maybe now I won’t be in so much pain.

Nick and his crew did a great job making this BMW like new again

Marquette, MI  –  January 17, 2016  –  Being winter the roads are slick and it can be hard to stop! During a recent snowstorm in Marquette, this driver was sitting at a red light. Unfortunately the car behind them wasn’t as prepared to stop and slide right into the back end of this BMW! The collision damages the rear end of the car shattering the passenger side tail light and damaging the rear quarter panel & bumper cover.

After some shopping around, the owner of this BMW found that LaFayette was the best place in town to bring their car. The LaFayette Collision Center crew has a great track record with repairs. They really work to make these cars look like new again. When the driver brought the vehicle in, Nick LaFayette performed a full estimate on the damages and like always, the client was kept up to date a long the way.

After a little bit of time and some hard work from the guys at LaFayette, it was like the accident never happened! With client will definitely be happy with their choice in car repair services.

Recent harm come to your vehicle? Contact Nick at (906) 226-8686 or check our their website!

Before the game on Sunday

Marquette, MichgianJanuary 17, 2016 – If you happened to check it out back in October, I wrote a blog post about my visit to Lambeau Field for the Cowboys vs Packers game.  It was a great time with good friends, and the Cowboys won.

So when the Packers defeated the Giants in the Wild Card round, and I knew they were going to be playing Dallas, I was excited.  I knew it was going to be a game surrounded by more hype than a normal Divisional Round game because the Cowboys and Packers are two very polarizing teams.

 

A vast majority of my friends and family are Packers fans.  So of course, the week leading up to Sunday was riddled with friendly banter.  This made me build more and more hype for the game myself.

Sunday finally came, and I couldn’t wait to throw my Cowboys gear on and get mentally prepared for the game.  I was in Detroit visiting my sister, and the auto show had just opened up to the public, and we decided to go.

I wore my white #88 Dez Bryant jersey and Cowboys hat to the show. At one point a father, wearing a Demarcus Ware Cowboys jersey came up to me and invited me to banter at his son, who was wearing an Aaron Rodgers Packers jersey and Packers winter hat.

This, of course, got me even more excited for the game.

Then the time finally came. My parents and sisters went to my cousins for the game, whose house was full of Packers fans, so I refused to tag along. I stayed at my sisters to watch the game by myself (which I probably should all games because sports make me insane).

After the game on Sunday

If you missed the game, I will spare you on the details.  But it was a crushing defeat for the Cowboys.  Aaron Rodgers ripped my heart out of my chest.  I didn’t sit down the entire fourth quarter of the game, but when Mason Crosby’s last-second field goal went through the uprights, I plopped on the couch as if my legs had failed me. I was devastated.

The lesson, as always, sports are dumb.
