It snowed and it snowed and it snowed

All day yesterday and most of last night.

I shovelled in the afternoon, while Mr. S. was at work. Mr. S shovelled in the evening while I was at work. Then this morning before leaving for work, Mr S and his brother got out the joint snow blower and gave everything another going over.

Sidewalk clear for now, and the sun is shining, and as a farmer friend pointed out "It's good for the land."

In hopes of minimizing the ice dam build up, I hauled out the roof rake.

That's about a 10 foot pole. There is another 4 foot section I could have added on, but at full length it's too heavy and unwieldy for me to handle.So I just scraped up as high as I could reach.

Of course that left me with

Another pile of snow in front of the door. Sigh. I'm tempted to just wait for spring.

Laughing out loud..... I love winter, though have to remind myself of that fact more frequently on days like we've had recently...

I did a bunch of the driveway and got the sidewalk compliant with Madison codes. Even when it's light and fluffy, it's hard work.
