What a way to spend Ground Hog's Day!

shovelling my groundhog tail off!

We had another winter storm yesterday and last night that really created havoc upon our Nation's Capital.

Wiarton Willy, our Ontario Groundhog Prognosticator has deemed an early spring! Heck, even I couldn't see my shadow for all the snow this morning!

Needless to say, today was considered a Cross-training day! No running, just shovelling. Luckily a neighbour (whom I've never met before) came by with his snowblower just after the plough had gone by. Thank YOU!

I still have not finished the great cross training event, tomorrow will be considered a triathalon. Shovelling, scraping and piling.

Life's fun if you don't weaken, enjoy your journey one step or shovel at a time!

I am sure you are sick of it but to this desert dweller that snow sure does look pretty.

Winter Storm Triathlon: shoveling, scraping and piling. GO LILY!

Hopefully the storm is passed and you will indeed see an early spring.

love and hugs,

You probably got as good of a work out today as if you had run huh?

Yeah, I believe in the machinery. I have a snow blower.

Hey, wait, didn't the snow fairy come and shovel your walk? LMAO

Snow fairy flew over and waved and went away! heheheh

I'm seriously considering a machinery purchase in the near future!

Gah, It's snow Sunday morning @ 7:45am, if this was rain I'd be building an Ark!

I'm going to coffee up and go shovel!

*Huhg's no that should be Hugs*

yeah... we had the shovelling scraping and piling going on here too. I should get a picture of the banks of snow piled higher than I can throw it! oy! We are waiting for the sidewalk ploughs to come by and create yet another winnow that has to be ploughed out. And it's snowing aGAIN this morning as I make my way to church.
