I shoveled snow several times. You can see some results below. Within an hour, the steps were covered over again. I have given up the fight for today and will start in again tomorrow.
Yes, it is beginning to look like Christmas around here. And two snow days certainly do a lot for my Christmas spirit!
PS. At 6:30, it only took about 20 tries for the Mr. to get his truck up our hill. (No four-wheel drive!) And while he kept trying, I shoveled again. The wind was picking up, and it was still snowing!
