Mumbo Jumbo...

So, remember all that mumbo jumbo about "winter's only redeeming quality is the snow" yesterday? Well, after shoveling my 12.5 inches of it from the walk, from the street to get my car out, from the bottom of the driveway after I moved the car into it, and the plow trucks (my hubby one of them) plowed me back in and from of course, the front steps and front walk (which the kids were sledding down) I'm done with the fluffy stuff!

The kids had a ball sledding down the steps. I know. You think I'm crazy for letting not just my kids, but the neighbors' kids as well sled down my steps, don't you? Well, I promise they were safe. There well more than enough snow to cover my three steps, front walk, the step down, the bottom part of the walk and the outside walk way. They had so much fun, and I was able to shovel.... And shovel.... And shovel.... Of course, I took a few turns sledding too. I had forgotten how much fun it is!

HOWEVER, after sledding on it for a few hours, 12.5 inches of snow packs down to about four inches.... And it's near impossible to get up. I've been inside for an hour and a half now, and my limbs are REALLY starting to turn to jello. Truthfully, it's getting difficult to type this. :-P

And we're supposed to get more tomorrow.

I'm exhausted just thinking about it!

When we had all our snow, it packed down into ice on my steps. Let me tell you I was not happy about that!

I would totally have been sledding down the steps, too!!

Be careful shoveling so much. Don't overdo it!

My kidlets were sledding down the sliding board. dangerous getting up the steps but i think that someone lost a sled down at the creek at stokes hill yesterday morning - (across from the library) - hopefully there wasn't still a kidlet attached to it!
