Oh Holy Snow

This has to be the worst storm we have gotten since I've lived in Canada. There might have been something similar when I lived at Ian's parent's house... but, due to my life changes, I was pretty much oblivious to everything during that time. I'll try to get more pictures... but I just went out to shovel the snow.

I will admit that I was pretty pissed when I saw our neighbor using his snowblower to clear our driveway. I didn't feel like dancing today or going to the gym. I was really looking forward to getting some exercise this way. It turned out to be okay because there was so much snow. There was at least a foot and a half of snow on our driveway. After our neighbor cleared it with the snowblower, I went behind him and cleaned it up. On one side of the driveway, the snow comes up to my waist. Here is before and after I cleared the stairs... the pictures don't do it justice. There is at least 3 feet of snow on the top step. The fun part shovel some snow and then trying to clear the snowbank without dragging more snow down. (It was really the best I could do half frozen.) 

I couldn't tell these 2 other neighbors that I really wanted to shovel the sidewalk to get a workout. I only got a quarter of the way down before the neighbor across the street came and then the neighbor behind us started. Nice guys though...

And this is me following the 30 minutes of shoveling. Everything is sore and my ears feel like they might fall off. As I write this... there is a lot of snow falling. Big fluffy flakes... We have to go out later... so there might be more pictures from that.
