Update to Snowy Sunday. . .

It snowed for about 11 hours straight yesterday. Andy was on call so I shoveled yet again. . . 16-20 inches. I don't think I have ever shoveled that much ever! I didn't get to it until 7:00pm because I was watching a neighbor boy most of the afternoon. I turned on cartoons for the boys and just hoped that they wouldn't kill each other while I was out in the dark and cold shoveling a way out of our driveway. I was about half way through and one of my super sweet neighbors came over and said, "I know that Andy is on call tonight, go and put your kids to bed I want to finish the shoveling for you" THANK YOU!! He made my day!! After he was done he came to my door and told me that he thinks that we get a really bad snow drift because our snow was A LOT deeper then his. Now I have a good excuse for my back seriously killing me. Not to mention I have to carry around a 33 pound one year, but that is another topic.

That is so crazy because here in C-bus we've hardly had any snow

I usually just leave the snow (including the drifts) for Chad. You are a much nicer wife than I am.

Your neighbor is awesome...you should bake him some cookies or something:)

Jessica,
I feel your pain. Kelly and I shoveled for one hour on Sunday, throwing snow over embankments more than 2ft. high. I really used those ab muscles, but I really don't want to do it again.
