I enjoy the process of shoveling snow provided that the snow doesn’t measure in the feet. It can take anywhere from half an hour to two hours to clear the driveway and sidewalks around our house (depending on the snow level) and it’s a good workout throughout.
The thing is, the snowfall here has been fast and frequent enough that I’ve been out there what seems like every day or every other day for a week. It’s been enough that this morning, as I woke up to go shovel, I noticed that my shoulders were still a bit sore from the previous shoveling.
Spring officially starts in fifteen days. I think I’m ready now.
