We currently have about eight inches of snow outside, but this morning we had around six. And of course before the last two inches fell I went out to clear the walk - which was 30 minutes of torture. I've never seen this much snow in Oregon, and I've never cleared a walk before. I remember hearing how hard it was, and my wife had a snow shovel that was her mother's - so we decided I should probably do it today, for the mailman if no one else.

So the kids played in the yard, and I cleared the walk, breaking through the middle ice layer with the edge of the shovel and then throwing each shovelful into the yard. I felt like I had run a mile or so after I finished. And now, if I squint just right, I can see the dip in the snow that is the result of my hard work.

Congrats! Shoveling is quite hard work. Even if you have to do it on a more regular basis. Let me know if you'd like small unmarked packets of ice melt shipped out from Connecticut.
