A Winter Workland
Well, winter is here and with it comes the snow. In my case, the 6 to 12 inches of snow. And also in my case, I've been asked to clear some of it. Which isn't quite what I like. I mean, sure, you have to clear it if you're having guests come over, but we aren't expecting guests for a while. And I'm not planning on going outside too often. Hell, I'm on break and that means staying warm inside the house! Anyway, I had to clear the front walkway yesterday. Roughly 8 inches of snow along a 50 to 100 foot path went elsewhere on the front lawn. Now, it's snowing again. We're supposed to get anywhere from 3 to 5 inches. Great! More manual labor! And this just in! My brother and I have been asked to clear the back deck! Add the roughly 8 inches from Friday and the expected 3 to 5 inches from today and we're going to be clearing probably over a foot of snow off the deck! Ready the bath salts and the massages!
