Hang in there, our rock is making another cycle around the sun, days are getting longer, and the sun is starting to gain in intensity again.
Snow is just another 4 letter word that starts with "S".

I'm tired of clearing the awnings and auxillary heat pump and keeping my furnace air/exhaust which is 36" above grade out of the drifting snow and using the snowblower on walks and driveways. Been doing this every 4 hours. Tomorrow I tackle BlackJack, but more snow on Saturday/Sunday, I'm ready for springtime.
I'm with you Jim. Since I'm retired and need the exercise, I snowblow our 1/4 mile long steep driveway with a walk behind. This is the first year ever that it was a daily routine for quite a while. A trip in Blue to the Tucson area in March is starting to sound like a good idea.....if I don't have to drive thru blizzards and ice covered roads to get there!

Heck Eric, wouldn't a manual snow shovel be an even better exercise regimen?
Well, 'ceptin' for the heart attack factor.

My wife went for elective ankle surgery in November, just before all the snow came. I too had to shovel daily, a job that is usually delegated to her.

Smart woman - good timing on that elective surgery!

It's snowing again, 2-4" expected and now there are ice dams on the gutters/roof edges. The gutters are starting to sag under the weight, I went out with a ladder/shovel, gave up. Came in and ordered a snow broom for the roof. That should eliminate the problem, once you order the tool you will no longer need it.

I think it got lost in the change. I just noticed that. I hope I am still on the map! I am in the Sacramento, California area.
