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.
