MaNiC mOnDaY #2

The theme for this week is "Drift". After all the snow we got this weekend, I can think of no better interpretation for this word, than as it applies to snow. According to the local news, we got over a foot of snow over the past two days. According to my leg as I stepped off the stairs to start shoveling, we got up to my knee. Thankfully it was relatively light and fluffy snow, not heavy and wet. Had it been much warmer when the snow fell, I probably wouldn't be here writing this, because I'd be in the hospital getting my arms reattached. As it was, I still only managed to shovel the walkway next to the house. I had to ask Billy to shovel the actual driveway. He did a wonderful job, too. We had a pile of snow at the end of the driveway that probably would come to the middle of my chest, thanks to the park plows, and he shoveled all of that out of the way so that I could get to work today. What a sweetheart! I made sure to have some nice cocoa waiting for when he came back in. And it looks like it's still not done snowing.

Spring is coming soon, right?

Sara said...

Growl!
72, 80 degrees?
Why do I live in Michigan?
Let's go Asara!

Sara said...

72 is comfortable: t-shirt and jeans weather. Some up here will wear shorts at that temp.

Chris said...

Snowed all day today, but didn't really stick.

That sounds like the proper stuff!

Sanni said...

7 or 8 single snow flakes during the last weeks... but it´s sooooo cold - I´d love to drift in "real" snow =)

Mike said...

This has nothing to do with your post, but I wanted to tell you that every time I see "Asara" on this blog or Skittles', I think:

Asante Sara Squashed Banana...

So much so that it was in my head when putting my away message on AIM that I put the real thing...so I think of you as Asante Sara.

Just thought you should know. ;)

Asara: why don't you & I get a goodie bag ready for Barb & Mike -- like a snowdrift in a bag!
We got a comparable amount to you here in sw michigan -- and it's now the drifts that are taking over!
thanks for participating in Manic Mondays!

Mo: I could get a large insulated cooler from our shipping department, would that work? I don't think that even the snow from my steps would fit in it, but it would be a start!
Thanks for hosting Manic Monday, I enjoy thinking of things to post for it!
