DIARY OF A SNOW
SHOVELER


December 8 - 6:00
PM


It started to
snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I
took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching
the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked
like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like
> newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9


We woke to a beautiful
blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the
landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be
a more lovely place in the whole world? Moving here
was the best idea I've ever had! Shoveled for the
first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did
both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon
the snowplough came along and covered up the sidewalks and
closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What
a perfect life!

The sun has melted all
our lovely snow.. Such a disappointment! My
neighbor tells me not to worry- we'll definitely have a
white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be
awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end
of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again.
> I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a
nice man, I'm glad he's our
neighbor.

Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches
last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The
cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my
breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and
sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplough came
back this afternoon and buried everything again. I
didn't realize I would have to do quite this much
shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this
way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff
so.

20 inches
forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer.
> Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra
shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a
wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think
that's silly. We aren't in Alaska , after
all.

Ice storm this
morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway
putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife
laughed for an hour, which I think was very
cruel.

Still way below
freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere.
