I'.m so happy. this all reminds me of growing up in this neighborhood.  I'd go around to my neighbors homes, and offer to shovel their walks for $0.25.  Yes, for a whole quarter. They would always give me more than that, but it's the thought that counts. Yesterday, It took me three trips outside to shovel a 20 foot path, 2 feet wide, to the sidewalk! 6 inches of snow my hind end! try 14 or more inches. and thats not counting all the lake effect that fell last night before i finally turned in, around 2AM.  The cat got us up at 8:20AM. it was -4 below then. oh my gosh.  I don't mind snow. i kind of mind the very cold, but i absolutely dislike not being able to get out and walk to the avenue!  You know, i like to get out, not being shut in.  Don't get me wrong. I love snuggling with the cat, but.......24/7.  Thats a much too many meows.
I just heard the city trash truck warn others to not go up that hill: they won't make it. A good thing, a truck got stuck, and a neighbor shoveled him out!  There always is a silver lineing to a cloudy day.
ok, stay warm.
I'm off
