I just came in after trying to shovel my walk and driveway with what
amounts to a two-foot entrenching tool (a spade with a broken handle). I
finally gave up and starting using my handy recycling bin to scoop the
snow up and pile it in a bank next to my walkway. It became a moot point
after I learned that pretty much every store in the area was closing or
had already closed at 3pm.
There's a big yellow backhoe out front now, making sure that when the
ice storm comes, there's a nice flat two-inch snowpack waiting...
checking in from Douglas St. (off Daisy).
