Now I feel bad that we are actually having this warm weather - during the days. Just finished shoveling snow at 12:10 PM… started at 4:30 AM. And I just realized I didn’t do in front of the front door and the one walk from the short set of porch steps out to the street. Sigh… The first thing I did this morning was the sidewalk out at the street - so the school kids didn’t have to walk in the street and could stand on the sidewalk at the corner while waiting for the school buses.
We received a whooping 4.1"/10.4cm of fluffy, great packing snow. Perfect for building a snowman, but I’m almost hoping the girls don’t ask me… my lower back is killing me and now I’m walking with a limp… right leg pain. Darned spine!
Currently at 12:15 PM it’s up to 37.4F/3C, the sun is shining bright - and strong - and there’s only a couple of scattered clouds once in a while. Guess you could say it’s sunny and clear. Snow is melting fast off the rooftops and my driveway is practically bare. I even did up to within 15’/5m from the carriage house… a lot farther than the last two storms. I had no help shoveling this time… the wife is still sick (got what I came down with last Friday, Saturday, Sunday…).
Wouldn’t you know… just after I got inside my wife told me our son called and said he just finished his driveway and walkways and said he’d be down to do our driveway and walkways. My wife told him everything is done. He was impressed (that his old man could still do it?).
Overnight low tonight to be 12F/-11C, high tomorrow of 30F/-1C and again overnight of 12F/-11C tomorrow night. Still seems funny hearing redwing blackbirds singing in the trees with all this snow on the ground.
