This would be a day for sledding and snowballs in the sun
Today is all about the heart.

Unless you have a snowblower, that is.

I thought I was doing cardio conditioning for soccer, but it turns out it was to shovel snow. Welcome to Michigan. Happy Valentine's day. Here's your shovel.

I felt okay after shoveling out half the driveway and one channel on the sidewalk to the front door. Most of it was around a foot deep. Then I went to the gym and swam for 20 minutes to work the kinks out.

My car isn't in as good shape for this weather. Too light, for one thing (a VW Jetta). It keeps sliding (to the right, dunno why) in the deep snow. Okay on cleared roads, but hard to navigate messy intersections. Maybe the sun will melt it down (into slush! yay!) by the time I head home.

Heh- I just floored it out of my garage and slid onto the main road. I have two brand new snow shovels sitting right next to the garage door. I may never use them. But then I think sliding around in snow while driving is kind of fun, so I don't mind. I am, however, realizing my tires are on their last leg traction-wise.

I hate to admit it, but I kind-of love snow shoveling.

I don't mind it, really, other than the part where my fingers get cold and then itchy as they warm back up. It's kind of fun work, and you see dramatic results when you're done.

I love snow shoveling, too! Sometimes I shovel the neighbors walks, late at night, just because mine's all done and I don't want to go in.
