It's a big driveway... and a lot of snow!
Thursday, March 08, 2018
Well, I guess in my head I wasn't going to have to worry about snow removal at the new house until next winter... I was wrong! We easily got a foot of snow if not a touch more while I was at work last night... combined with a long and busy 27 hour shift, I didn't even get out to shovel until way late in the day today. I opted for a nap first.
When I finally did get outside to shovel, it was warmer and it was just a light flurry like snow fall instead of the "can't really see two feet in front of you" snow we had through the night and early morning. It was heavy, and apparently with a large house you also obtain a large driveway... it's got to be double of what my last driveway was...easily! I spent an hour and a half and got about 3/4 of it shoveled before I called it good enough. I thought about toughing it out another half hour but by that point my body was aching a bit, I still had homework to do.
A few hours later my old neighbor swung in with his plow truck and pushed back banks etc for me. He's a good person!
Needless to say, it was a good day both nutrition and exercise wise (which is why I opted to shovel anyhow). It's been a good couple of days and I feel myself starting to get back on track which is nice!
Anyhow- it's time for bed, I'm on call tonight and into tomorrow until 6pm, and I need to catch up on some sleep hopefully!
