God I hope I stop whining about the weather soon.....even I can't stand myself.

Another freaking foot of snow yesterday. But today, oh glory be: sunshine. And nothing falling out of the sky.
I read in the paper today that last year we got 108 cm. of snow for the entire winter. As of yesterday at 7 a.m., we'd had 122 cm. In ten days. Of December.

The good news is, I'm getting rockin' fab triceps from shovelling snow and flinging it overtop of mounds that are taller than me.

hmmm... your laneway looks suspiciously snowblower ish to me... so you can stop whining ANY time and last I checked you have a normal blue job pink job breakdown of duties chez loudshoes.

Ah, BLG, but the breakdown of jobs LOOKS like it is blue/pink, but in reality, the snowblower is in blue territory, and the shovelling is pink. Except when we came home from the staff party on Saturday night to find the snowplow had socked us in again, and the Mister and I were shovelling in our finery at 11:30 at night. We looked mighty elegant doing it!

You know how you can complain about your lot in life and then someone comes along who has it worse than you? Well, Mrs. Loudshoes, while you're shovelling snow, remember my poor firstborn who got stuck in the snowstorm this week and was stranded on the highway with his two co-workers for 29 hours. When the traffic ground to a halt, they were about 100 metres or ten minutes from the barricade with no way of getting past the vehicles ahead of them. And there they sat from 7:30 am Monday until 12:30 pm Tuesday. Feel better now?
