Taking the Gold in Snow Shoveling

4:30 AM Wake up to snow… again (damn)

5:30 AM Still snowing, thinking about shoveling. (damn, again)

7:30 AM Drag our asses out of bed and think, “We are so over snow!” (except for Mel, she loves the stuff)


I walked outside and saw how breathtakingly beautiful everything was. And even more beautiful was the sight of Gary in that red jacket halfway through the job!

I love this shot. If not for the signage and his jacket the whole world was black and white. We had just finished our annex shoveling job – our 88-year-old neighbor who I swear is going to propose to Gary if he shovels there one more time. That Danny, he went and had all 4 wisdoms pulled just so he would not have to shovel again!

There has been talk of a snow-blower, but then how would we go for the gold?

Is it almost spring yet?

    Love the pic with Mel. And I hear you, Amy. Hubby is sick so I had to shovel our walk and around the garage yesterday. And let me say, anything more than six inches is overkill. 😉

    I say let’s send the snow to Vancouver, where they could use it. I have also started a petition to repeal winter. Will you join me?

    `Must be a NE thing that most people up here either have snow blowers or have plow guys in big ass pick-up trucks. You guys are hard core. No one in my neighborhood shovels their driveway.
