Weekly Busy Work ! !

Hey Friends, Just thought I'd show you what I've been busy doing the last few days. Seems to be a weekly exercise this winter. This is at the top of the driveway.
This is about the same spot and I'm just starting to shovel a path for my car tires. Thats all I want to do but of course I'll have to take out some of the depth. My car is low to the ground and the last snow took out the muffler! Sounds like a motorcycle now!!

Showing the bottom sharp turn. The little cedar is really flexible. Every snow bends her over to the ground. This snow is HEAVY & WET and the cedar top was stuck in the ice.

This view is just past the sharp turn. If you look real hard, you'll see the little creek or spring that we have to cross the first time. You have to cross it again a little further up.
Anyway, snow is pretty but I hate it. I would or will shovel for an hour or so, go back in, warm up and paint for an hour or two, then go shovel for another hour. The calvary (my brothers) will be here Sunday to dig me out, Bless their little hearts!
I've missed two days at my REAL job and I'm hoping my boss will see this post. I don't think they really believe it's this bad.
Next post I'll show you a couple shots from the Art by Night @ Gallery 108 that took place Thursday the 4th. I had a good time.
Happy Trails.

That looks like a lot of snow, too much snow. Seems like you might need a sled instead of a car. I am sick of winter and ready for warmer sunshiny days. Hope yours melts soon :)

I hope your brothers show up; otherwise, we won't see till Spring thaw. That's a lot of snow!

Been there done that got the down jacket so to speak. The last 2 years I spent half the day shovelling out which included shovelling roofs so they wouldn't cave in as many had in North Idaho. This year, we have rain and not snow, boy am I grateful! Don't neglect roofs especially if they're flat.Remember my friend Mike's saying "ice belongs in a drink" Happy shovelling
