Here We Go Again... in more ways than one.

It's 10 PM and I just shoveled 7 inches of snow off the driveway. I'm scared of waiting until the morning when it will be a colossal 14 to 16 inches. And I believe I'm living in The South. Yea....

Last month my mini-pines and bushes did not fare well (they look like God split them in half with a karate chop) due to the weight of the snow, so I also brushed them clean. I have about 40 bushes, so it's quite a job. I was unable to move the next morning when I did this last month... let's see if my body is in better shape tomorrow. Knocking the snow off the tall bushes is kind of fun work, like beating a rug but instead of dirty dust sparkly white flakes shimmer in the street light. Sometimes a short branch "domino effects" a tall branch and unexpectedly dumps a handful of snow down my collar, which cools me right down. Good times :-) Wish you were here.

Actually, this weekend will probably be the weekend I start the great "hunt for a partner". Being snowbound and all, there is no longer any excuse to procrastinate.

Maybe next winter I'll actually have someone around to share this heavy load. Stay tuned for an interactive post where you'll get to vote on my profile picture that I'll post on the dating website.

Stay warm and safe all of you in the path of this storm!

Very excited. I think you are very courageous to do this publicly, but then courage is one of your many great attributes.
