An excessive amount of unseasonably late, wet snow
My trusty shovel. The snow was fairly shallow when I started, but it kept on snowing.
The starter path
more snow moved. The pile on the side is getting pretty high. The snow appears to be letting up and the sun going down, so I quit for the night. this was a mistake as there was another four inches overnight.
What's really sad is we had the same again over the next few days. Since I'm the only one at home that can do this kind of labour, and we were out of hot cocoa, it made for some interesting days.
I help one of my friends with his snow removal business so I do a lot of shovelling. Today I went out solo to clear about 4-5cm of snow off of all the driveways he's got contracts for which is seven. Here are pics of one I did. All in all I think it took about 6 minutes as it was light snow and I have learned how to shovel pretty efficiently. I would say it is definitely over 60 ft long but I can measure to be sure next time I do it if the person checking this BB is unsure.
This commercial building in my neighborhood houses a volunteer organization which provides resources to the elderly and disabled in the area. My apartment gets shoveled and salted by the management but I saw the snow outside and I figured I could lend a hand and maybe start on this PEP while I’m at it.
Finally, it snowed! It has been snowing here since before midnight last night. Very fine snow coming down sideways and drifting. Covered porches are covered in snow. I did some snow shoveling. Where the wind isn't blowing the snow, it is about 4 inches deep.
