they don't start sentences with "you know who just died shoveling snow?"

Yesterday there was 12 inches of snow on the ground. And then 5 more inches fell yesterday afternoon and night.

Remember this picture that I posted?

Yes, that is for real what it looks like now.

Some lessons from shoveling snow:
1. Start at the road end of the driveway. It is the hardest part.
2. Shoveling snow is a good way to meet neighbors.
3. Snow really does turn yellow when a dog pees on it.
4. Snot freezes.
5. Shoveling snow is REALLY hard work. It should be a challenge on The Biggest Loser. I think I lost 10 pounds.

The best part of the day was when a neighbor came over and helped me finish off the hard end of the driveway. Best neighbor.
