the joys of winter storms

I just got back inside from doing my duty to my neighborhood by shoveling my and my neighbor's sidewalks just in time for the high school to let out.

But as I went out to the garage to fetch my shovel, I recalled that I had thrown out my old shovel, which had broken on last year's ice. So I drove the Saab down to Ace Hardware bought a shovel - a special new kind this year with plastic that doesn't stick to snow. Well, snow does kinda stick to it, but not much, considering how snowball-happy is this snowfall. And gosh but is one of those snow-pushers a nice thing! Except when then catch on the sidewalk edges, oof.
