Last Gift of Winter

The last snowstorm of the winter left about a foot of new snow. Thanks to the town plow, I have 2 – 3 foot snowbanks. The dog thought it was fun. She got buried in snow about three times because she thought snow shoveling was an elaborate game of snow catch. She'd chase the flying snow only to get buried by the next shovelful.

Glad someone was enjoying it.

After lunch I'm heading down to my daughter's to shovel her out. She's coming home with the new baby today, so she'll need a cleared space to park. Of course, I wouldn't even be here shoveling if it wasn't for the new grandkid. This time of year I'm normally in the sunny south. Good thing the little guy is cute.



  1. I figured a guy who lives where you do would have a 4x4 vehicle. Since 1977 I have always owned at least one four wheel drive vehicle. I can't imagine life without one. I bought my first one when my Chrysler got stuck in the snow in my driveway when I wanted to go hunting. Bought a Blazer the next day. Then I had Trail Blazers and Ram Chargers, and now a Jeep.

    1. Would you believe I've only owned one 4x4 the whole time I've lived in snow country? Good tires make all the difference.

  2. First, congrats on the new grandson! The dog sounds like he is making the best of the snow. Maybe he could teach us all how to enjoy it, although I doubt that folks like me will never be convinced that snow is always a good thing.

    At least you are getting all the exercise you need for a while, right?

    1. Yup, exercise. If it doesn't give you a heart attack, it makes you stronger.

  3. Congrats on the new grandson!

    As far as our region's latest weather is concerned, it's New England. If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes and it'll be worse! LOL!
