Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow . . .

Chris, Max, and I got out there around 3 this afternoon and shoveled the walk and driveway. The snow is wet and coming down fast, so I didn't want any of us to have to try to shovel it all at once. I'm really glad we did. It was enough work as it was, and it's still coming down steadily. For awhile there it was coming down at the rate of 2" an hour, and although I think it's slowed some, that was pretty impressive. It's weird to think that earlier this week it briefly hit 70 and my lawn in all its ugly entirety was exposed. On the one hand, I'm ready for spring. On the other--the snow looks a LOT nicer than my icky brown lawn.

I let Emily have a good romp while we worked on shoveling. She ran and ran, but never too far. She doesn't go for distance now that Thor is out. She still runs back and forth and ignores us when we call, but now she keeps us in sight. When we go inside, she goes inside.

Tomorrow I'll try to take some pictures of my finished projects. I just have to find the camera.

Wow, and I thought we had it rough here, in the 50's. Things have bloomed already, and we've gone below freezing a couple nights in a row. But snow? Wow!

Stay safe!
