I quit smoking the day before my heart attack... I am fairly fit and we live in an apartment complex where the shoveling is done for us...I have to go LOOKING for snow to shovel. Love the stuff.

I'll let you know when you can come and help shovel. That is if we ever get enough to shovel. ;) I'm ready for snow too. Today was a tease. Felt like snow, looked like snow, but no snow. Now it is going to be nice again tomorrow (60 degrees). :(

When I worked nights I would shovel the walk outside my unit's door to the facility. Just for the heck of it and I had fun. A couple of 15 minute breaks and I could have it nice by the time maintenance showed up in the morning.

We could use a few days of that 60F weather you have. We got teased with a few flurries today but our temp.'s didn't get much higher than 20F today in SE South Dakota.

Well, for those of you who want snow so badly, we are getting it for you. It has been raining, snowing, raining, off and on. Now it is turning to all snow. So if you hurry, I will try to keep it here for you.

30 now along the river. We were in the teens earlier this morning. Supposed to gradually warm up the rest of the week.
