This past week Deadwood got 44 inches of snow. We get a fair amount of snowfall & every once in awhile a pretty good dump of the fluffy precip. But, by Saturday I was ready to check out & head for warmer territory. Now, don't get me wrong. I like snow. In fact, I love to play in it. But, SNOW REMOVAL- now that is an entirely different story. YUK! It took me 2 hours to dig from my front door to the street. (a distance of 10 feet) And, another 3 hours to dig my car out after the snow plow pushed a bunch of snow up against it. Someday, I'll have a garage and a front end loader for the sidewalk. The upside is.... I got a great workout, helped a friend dig her car out & got outside after being housebound for a couple of days. And, while a sunny beach with an umbrella drink sounds tempting, I'm not ready just yet to give up my four seasons.
