The first major session of shovelling for the winter happened this morning. I don't think I've shared this observation before: for years, I have believed that our driveway is the longest in Arkona that is shovelled out by hand. It reminds me of my days in the snowbelt of Perth County, digging and digging out a path for the tool shed doors so that we could get the snowblower out.
Thankfully the snow was powdery and fluffy today; not so good for making snow creatures, but easy to shovel. With Rei's help, we made quick work of it and went in for hot chocolate. Until the second shift in the afternoon where we cleared the sidewalks and paths by the church to get ready for Monday School.
For now, we're caught up. Until it snows again.
