I shovelled off about four inches of snow before Tim got home. By shovelled, I mean some good old fashioned shovelling. Our snowblower picked a doozy of a time to break. Tim spent another two hours out there when he got home. He came in and informed me, "We're f*cked." We still had plenty of snow, it was still coming down and we were running out of places to put it.
Why bother clearing? Tim has to work today at 3pm and while the rest of town may shut down, the ER is always open. So first thing after breakfast, we started clearing a path to the Jeep. And then tried to clear as much snow as we could. All that time getting the kids gear yesterday - really should have bought for me instead. They played outside for a 1/2 hour and then retired to the indoors for a Scooby Doo marathon. Tim and I, on the other hand, were out there for a good three hours and have most of it cleared.
