Oh my, it really was a blizzard

The weathermen were correct. We had snow, we had wind and then we had a bit more snow. This morning the day dawned clear and we could see the work in front of us.

                                    Well, perhaps we were looking                                                                                              a bit before dawn.

My husband and I have a good division of labor: he plows and I shovel. Fortunately for me, the blizzard deposited a large quanity of dry, light snow.  I did the porch area before he left for work. Then around 10am I needed wood for the stove…..

Before: I liked the door print                                           After: OCD is a bitch when shoveling!                                               impressed on the snow

                   Keep in mind that after the shoveling,                                                                                                                                              I still had to bring in the wood!

Then late in the afternoon I had to go dig out around the barn. Charby was not impressed that I shoveled before I threw her  some hay. Feeling frisky in the brisk sunshine, she tossed her head and showed me her heels.

                            Oddly, I did not feel the need for                                                                                                                   “traditional” exercise today!

  1. Wow – that’s some serious snow! I love the way it transforms a landscape, and shovelling snow was fun the one time I had to do it, but I’m not sure I’d like to have to do it on a regular basis.
