I Hate Shoveling Snow

    I keep hearing news reports about people dying

    from shoveling snow, even young people. That makes me even more reluctant to shovel. I won't do it if the conditions are too hazardous.

    Taking out the trash,

    carrying heavy items to and from my car, now shoveling snow from my front yard. All the things, that reminded me of when my brother would do those things. It's really heartbreaking to know that my brother is not here anymore. It's been difficult finding a way to continue living...

    ''I Also Hate Shoveling Snow''

    I also ''hate'' the snow, besides hating shoveling the stuff away,. I have a number of reasons for hating the snow, (1) it restricts mobility, ie: trains, buses, cars everything seems to stop running, (2) may have ice underneath it's surface, (3) mostly cold, and (4) kids...

    Are You Serious?

    It took me 1.5 hours to shovel on Sunday.  Then I had to shovel Monday and Tuesday.  The biggest snow pack in 29 years.  THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

    Enough Already

    Having to shovel twice in one day?!?! We are getting thick, wet snow today.  Three inches already and the worst is yet to come.  It just gets too heavy to wait until later, plus we are under a winter storm warning until midnight tonight.  AAAAGGGGHHH!!!

    It's Gonna Happen Soon.......

    Uggggghhhhh... The snow's been falling, and I must go back to the deck and find the shovel. I dread the dull back pain that arrives with each snow fall. We have a snowblower, but that doesn't work on the deck or narrow walkways well. The snow is a beautiful, wintery white...

    I Hate It!

    I just hurt my back tonight trying to shovel out my car that got plowed in.  I am still flippin' stuck too!  I cannot continue to shovel anymore tonight.  I miss the days when I was little and I got to just play in the snow.  I liked it more then than I do now...

    Starting to try and clean my sidewalks.

    Why is it as a kid I enjoyed this now hate it? Is it because its not work, that I have no choice, that I'm smarter. Can't be that I'm smarter or else I'd have some other idiot doing this for me. Oh well the gyms closed so at lest I'll get some excersise today
