Gold, Silver and Bronze

It snowed and I shoveled. Four times yesterday and just now. The first three yesterday were the first three snow clearings on our block. Feels good to start the competitive snow clearing season with a healthy lead.


First again this morning, but a five am start is an unfair advantage amongst this set.

Spreading it out over five sessions made it manageable. Although not a lot in volume, it was wet. A real taint ripper. The moisture came from the tropics. I could almost smell the palm tree and gentle waves. Not.

Waxing the snow shovel made a huge difference. Until I cleared the end of the drive and the road salt erased the benefits in an instant. I should have switched shovels. Maybe I should hire a caddy?

Happy Thanksgiving to you. I’ll say a prayer for your entrée.
