We live on an unplowable road so we'll be doing the sidewalk, driveway and then helping the rest of the neighbors with keeping the road clear! I really got into shoveling last year. We had tons of snow and a couple of blizzards. I was even shoveling the back deck for more activity (and so it wouldn't collapse).
I don't get it! Let's start shoveling snow this year. Dang it all---what did you do before?
This cracks me up.
Hey, I just thought, Grok didn't have snow shovels. Is shoveling snow primal? What sort of supplements should I take to make up for neolithic shoveling?
I LOL'd too because I thought the exact same thing!
As a poor single chick who lives in an upstairs apartment... I shovel. I shovel my porch, my steps and the sidewalk down to my car. And lots of de-icer cuz it sucks in NY. I may end up shovelling the whole damn driveway because our plow guy (landlord hired him) can't seem to take the snow down to the gravel and my car got stuck several times last year. #IHateWinterInNY
Sorry, no go! Driveway is steep and long and I live on the side of a mountain. We get "wicked" dumps of snow here so that would kill me, I once had the silly notion of selling my trusted snowplow and snowblowing the driveway, thought it would be easier on the driveway and provide good exercise. First dump was two feet which took me two hours to snowblow before I went to work, needless to say it sucked bigtime and I now have a plow again. I still shovel but leave that to the porch, walkway and roof on occasion.
You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes
Logasmo: Take it easy. I just kid a lot. I don't think any less of you. My comments were meant to bring a few chuckles. Sorry if you feel crapped on, but remember that life can be brutal. Learn to kid and get 'kidded'. Then it all gets good.
We got about an inch of snow a few weeks ago - probably all we'll get this winter - but I shoveled it anyway! I live in a townhouse complex and I did ALL the walks! (Because the roads were icy and I wasn't going to the gym that day...)
Visiting my mom in Whitehorse over Christmas though - will do the shoveling for her too.
No snow, just record amounts of rain here in the PNW. A resultant landslide just a couple of miles north of me has shut down Amtrak on the West Coast, from Portland to Vancouver, BC. Water backed up all the way to my front door (!) last night, so I can get in my primal moves by sweeping and clearing away debris.
