Jeepers, my back hurts! I did hardly anything yesterday -- swept snow from my car and the walks, shoveled a very little -- but perhaps even that was too much while still recovering. I certainly slept with great enthusiasm, all of last night and most of yesterday during the day.
Today will be mostly indoors, I think, and nothing too strenuous. By Monday morning, we're supposed to get another 3" of snow, plus or minus. Once that's fallen, back to the digging-out, or sweeping out if it stays cold enough (or gets cold enough again -- we may flirt briefly with 40 degrees this afternoon, forty above, that is). That's one virtue of the extreme cold, at least the snow stays lightweight. But will the warm-ish spell augur wetter, heavier snow? Stay tuned for our next exciting episode!
