Snow so Deep

I have never seen snow this deep since I was very little. I was told by my neighbor that it was worse in 1997 when a blizzard hit the area, but I was basking in the sun in Guam in 1997 and missed all of the fun. It took me about 2 hours to shovel the front walk, driveway, stairs, front porch, back porch, and the patio. This snow was wet and heavy and after moving about 5 tons of it, my back is sore.
My daughter (aka my little helper) always wants to help me whenever I shovel the snow. She loves playing in the snow too. We were going to make an igloo today but the temperature outside is around 10 degrees f. Once it warms a little, we will begin our project. She had a lot of fun playing with Champ.
It's always a treat to see our dog jump into the snow and completely disappear. Being a Jack Russell, he is good at digging and tunneling and has little problem getting out. He did manage to lose a couple his "baby teeth" trying to grab the shovel while I was slinging snow.

There's just so much snow there that one would think you are living in Alaska, lol. There must be tons of snow in your driveway which you had to shovel. Definitely, that will cause a king size sore on your back. It's nice that you had an angel helper to do the job, lol. When the weather gets a little bit tolerable you can always start your little igloo with your darling angel. And you also had a wonder dog to help you do the hard chore, lol. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

It's so weird to see the south getting so much snow and us in the north are not getting any. But, we are staying at temps thatar elow freezing. snow would be welcomed because that would mean it was a little warmer outside!

Wow! I just don't think I'd survive it.

Mommy Liz said...

Wow! too much snow, reminded me of a blizzard in Indiana in 1998 that even the plow truck collapsed on the side of the road. Glad I live here in Alabama now, where there's not a lot of snow..We didn't have any this year.

It's always nice to shovel when you have little helpers..Yey!!
