Oh, crap. I forgot about shoveling snow. It will probably be taboo for my shoulder this year. I'll have to find a kid somewhere to do some of it so SO doesn't try to do it all.

Time to buy a snowblower Andy. You can definitely do it with a snowblower. I'm pretty sorry I tried it though. I'd made so much progress with my stupid shoulder and now I'm back to square one!

I live in a condo development so I'm responsible for very little. I have to dig my car out of its parking space and move it so the parking area can be plowed clear. I have to shovel off my deck and shovel a path from back to front so I can get the trash and recycle to the curb. A small power shovel could do the trick.

Ah. I guess a snowblower is a bit of overkill. Our driveway is about 80-100ft long and narrow, I think that qualifies as snowblower territory.

A power shovel or a powerful kid should do the job! Good luck.

I understand completely Andy. I am sitting here with three lists in my mind. One list from the surgeon of things I can't do, a list of things I can do, but don't want to, and a list of things I would love to do but can't see well enough yet. Like sewing. I keep the eye that had the surgery closed. When I do open it, I can actually see things to my left. Something I have never been able to do all my life. Right now it is unsettling. But I am sure I will adjust. I would come and shovel for you, but I think that is on the list of "can't do." I know I sound crazy, but I have always loved shoveling. I am not so sure it is a good activity for a heart patient. But I would love to be abale to try a few shovels full. Make a pile big enough to make a snowgirl.

The snow outside is truly beautiful...until you have to drive in it! We got between 8 and 10 inches of heavy, wet snow. The snow plows are out, but they focus on the main roads and not the residential streets. Of course, you need to get out of your neighborhood to get on the streets! Oh well, slow and steady. I'm going to hole up with netflix til I have to go to work.
I'm sorry Alix, I know how that can hurt. Mine is finally getting to the point where I can move it without wincing.That will teach me not to fall. Please take care and feel better.Get a good movie some comfort nummies and rest.

we don't have to do anything here. since the electrical room for the building is on our side and uses our path past the front door, the complex has to keep it clean from leaves and snow, and keep it salted which is great for me. my parking spot is next to the utilities spot and is a disabled spot so they keep it very clean too!
