Just to let you all know, I haven’t fallen off the edge of the Earth, or anything dramatic. We got a lot of snow, with a LOVELY layer of ice preceding it, making clearing operations a royal pain. Plus. the township guy who usually plows the side roads disappeared, my driveway took on the consistency of a bobsled run, and the wife worked yesterday. SO – it was all up to me. I had to clear my own sidewalk, the church sidewalk across the street, the side street to GET to the church parking lot, and enough of the parking lot so my wife could park off the street. Which consisted of shoveling snow (about 8″ of wet stuff), then chiseling through the ice, then shoveling THAT up. By hand. While keeping the wood furnace going so the house didn’t turn into an icicle. All that was yesterday – today was clearing all 150′+ of driveway, plus cleaning up everything that melted onto things and froze, plus restocking the wood in the basement from the garage, plus pulling down snowbergs that sagged of our and the church’s roofs.
So, I’ll get to all the responses to my last post about Gerry Anderson, AND to the posts for the last two days, AND to whatever comes in tomorrow morning, during the day tomorrow. While I sit here and listen to muscles I didn’t know I had scream obscenities I didn’t know existed!
Oh, and the answer? None, when you’re ankle-deep in either – HEAD FIRST!
