Want to know what daily life is like in the Northern Mid-West? Particularily in winter? Well Mother Nature bestows random work upon you without consulting your schedule, and shoveling snow becomes a routine part of life. Here is my driveway taken just 2 days ago after a recent shoveling project dealt to my area by Ms Nature.
What is interesting as the snow piles up higher and higher is that the effort to toss the next shovel full over the hill becomes more challenging and exhausting. Some places in town such as shopping malls and commercial streets have a hard time finding places to put the snow, as we have had very little melting in over 6 weeks.
Not all is terrible though. I looked at the weather channel this morning and does indicate we might see a day or two in the 40's in a week, so that is good news. Spring cannot come soon enough!
