Huff puff

When the snow's this deep, there's only one thing to do: shovel, shovel, shovel. I decided to forego my Tanya Tucker workout today and instead invested in a shovel down at the hardware store, then started heaving the stuff around. I shoveled the driveway, I shoveled the place where I park the truck, I shoveled the walk, I shoveled the porch, and I even shoveled a bit of the road. People all up and down the block were doing it, which was very social--we exchanged shoveling tips, kvetched and marveled at just how much snow fell.

As I was finishing up, several passers-by complimented me on what a fine job I'd done. It'll do till next time.
