Our current plight as a result of the recent blizzard has me wondering what others’ experiences have been in terms of being “stuck” on your property. For the purposes of this thread, I’m going to allow for a very broad definition of “stuck.” My question is, what’s the longest period of time you’ve spent where you did not leave your home’s property because it would have been too difficult to do so?
“Property” here means either your house’s property line or the boundaries of your apartment/condo/townhome’s lot. You can have been stuck due to weather, illness, home detention, or perhaps an angry deer peering at you through the window and making throat-slitting gestures. But the situation has to be such that you WANTED to go off your property, but you just couldn’t reasonably do so. Stepping outside is OK, but you have to have been prevented from leaving altogether.
For me, based on estimates I’m hearing about when I’ll actually see a plow down our residential street, it’s going to hit 72 hours. Even when I’ve had a bad flu, I’ve left the house for a few minutes to get medicine or something. But I’m guessing others here have spent far longer stuck for various reasons. So let’s hear your stories.
