Is the snow wet & heavy?

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

You bet'cha... It is a heart attack waiting to happen. Or maybe just a strained back.

I just spent about 45 minutes muscling my snow blower around to remove about 4-inches of snow from where it fell to out of the way.... and I only did about half of my drive. The main reason I went out when I did was to move the windrow the highway plow truck dumped in the end of the drive. The plow truck just went by again.. dumped some more snow in the drive...

The snow is starting to look more like rain. The weather map says it has been raining for more than an hour....

The snow is so heavy... that it is falling off the trees, wires etc. It needs to do some strength training to build up those muscle so that it can hold on, rather than falling to the ground in a plop/heap.

At least snow once you move it, it stays moved... grass you mow it and then you have to mow it again, and again, and..... well you know what I mean.. some things once done stay done others you just have to keep doing it over and over again... Rather like choosing good for you food, in good for you portions..... over and over to change your weight/shape to the one you think you want and then keep your new you.

Well, I think I will go back to my book & knitting.

    I am so tired of winter! I do not like shoveling wet snow. I guess I should not complain and hope for spring to come soon.

    Take care & have a great day! emoticon

    I saw this on Accuweather site earlier this week
    1 cubic foot of dry snow weighs 3-6 pounds
    1 cubic foot of wet snow weighs 20 pounds

    No wonder my back hurts!

    Snow shovelling and grass cutting should never be mention in the same sentence.

    Please, wait for the snow to melt on its own. It is not worth inflicting injury on yourself. Perhaps you can pay some kid to clear your drive. One winter my husband was clearing snow off the roof and fell and fractured his shoulder in many places. He had other snow clearers for company in that hospital room. I am glad to hear you are being cozy and knitting! Stay safe and warm! emoticon

    I wish I could have stayed home from work today with a book and my knitting instead of navigating through this snow! At least I got a drive most of the way to work and I'm getting a ride home too!
