Today, for the first time, I had to shovel snow off the sidewalk. This completes my winter experience. We (my housemate and myself) thought it would be a pretty difficult job. But it turned out that snow, while looking very white and solid-like, is pretty fluffy and airy even after it’s all piled up into pedestrian-obstructing drifts. So, some shoveling and serious back-stretching later (I’m going to wake up with an back-ache tomorrow, I just know it), we had several feet of semi-clear sidewalk – at least till next week when I’m sure the Boston weather will once again drop a foot of snow on us.
At least our heating should be fixed tomorrow – but, that’s another story!
