Ah yes, the Alberta Blizzard Season, the most wonderful time of the year.

I like a clean sidewalk.

Nature has provided me yet another series of opportunities to show the world how much I really prefer my snow to be in neat piles rather than unruly drifts on my parking spot or in front of my house.  After work yesterday, I spent the better part of 2 hours pushing too much damn snow around creating 5 to 6 foot piles of snow at various points near my house.

Poor Intransigentia she was also caught up in the madness and was eventually tasked with digging the first pile of snow out and transferring it to the new second pile, in an effort to make room for the next snowfall.  She almost disappeared into the mighty drifts that were accumulating, but did a heroic job in fighting her way out and giving me more space to put the new snow.

It is now, the next morning, it is still snowing and my back has more than a few things to say about yesterdays orgy of shovelling and scraping.   It is the dull throbbing pain that makes me write this particular post and the amusing fact that I seemed to have frozen my posterior yesterday so much so that I made cold spots wherever I landed, sitting inside for at least three hours.

Not me but I can relate.


The best part is that, it is still snowing, so I have more good times to look forward to after work.
