It snowed and it snowed and it snowed. Fourteen inches. That is a lot of snow to shovel. You folks in the snowy areas have gadgets like snow blowers and plows. Yeah. I have a plastic shovel. Well, a few shovels, thank goodness, because I broke one trying to move the snow. It was oddly dry and sticky and heavy all at the same time.
We usually have guys knocking on our door asking if they can shovel for some money. I turn them away because shoveling is good for me. But this time, I just did not know how I was going to move the ton of snow piled up on my driveway with my stinking plastic shovel. I could do it. But it was going to take time. I got started on it and then lo and behold, the shovel brigade came marching down the street. I waved them over. When you have that much snow, shoveling comes at a premium and for $100 bucks four guys cleared the walks, the driveway and the huge pile of frozen snow the snow plow left behind. Oh the joy watching them shovel like mad. It took them about 20 minutes. Not bad money.
Then it snowed another six inches. Seriously. This time I shoveled it. We had snowed piled so high I was not sure where to put it. These pictures were taken two days later.
