Early Morning Snowblowing Adventure

We awoke to three inches of fresh snow this morning. So, we got up at 6 a.m. and while Rog snowblew out the long driveway, I shoveled the paths to the barn and chicken coop, fed the animals, and hauled water. (I don't mind shoveling in the dark --I enjoyed when we lived in town and after a storm all our neighbors would be out clearing their driveways together before breakfast so they could get to work.)

Rog finished before I did and went inside to shower. When I finished my chores I discovered he had inadvertently locked me out! I knocked and hollered for quite some time before he finally exited the shower, heard me, came downstairs and let me in. I was glad it was +20F, not -20F! (He sweetly atoned by making me breakfast and my favorite iced mocha.)

By 7:45 a.m., we had snowblown, done the chores, fed the cats and dogs, washed a load of laundry, rinsed the sprouts, showered, and eaten breakfast. We should get up this early every day and accomplish so much.

Wow, very productive! I always wish I could get up earlier, but I always jump out of bed at the last minute.

Wow, you put in a day before the rest of the world was rolling out of bed. I don't know if I would enjoy all that snow. It's beautiful but I doubt I'd like shoveling it before breakfast.

Wow! All that before 7:45? That's great! That snowblower looks like fun :)
