We had, are still having, a semi-blizzard. I say semi because I've seen plenty worse around here. So I shoveled a lot of snow today. Shoveled out my house, and my dad's house, both of which are corner houses with big yards, meaning lots of extra sidewalk to clear.
A friend from across the street cautioned against overdoing it today. "It's heart-attack snow," he said, with somber earnestness. He's right, it was heavy snow, the stressful kind, the kind that brings on heart attacks. But my heart seems to be okay. I got quite the workout.
Clearing the snow away from your hovel,
is just like a marathon, but with a shovel.
