810 calories per hour! Whoooo Hoooooo!

This is out on my street last week,
picture the same street with about 2 feet blown in.
snow shoveling calculations for burning calories,
810 per hour.
I shoveled 3 times yesterday so 2430 calories burned,
and funny thing,
there is more of the white stuff out there today
than yesterday and the wind has blown snowdrifts almost as high as my fence.
and somedays it is okay to say I don't want to,
and then you go do it anyway.
and your out there thinking how cold you are and are wondering why
your sweating, and why you have to lean on the fence to catch your breath,
I feel sorry for the people that literally can not get out to do this,
so I am going to venture out, why because I can.
And that is enough reason for today.
Keep warm, enjoy,
Until next week,

  6. Don't overdo now!!?? The snow can be pretty but I would really rather it leave now. Ha!

  7. woo hoo. my youngest would love some of that snow. We only got a dusting of the stuff. And shoveling three times in one day....that's great. Your street looks so wonderful with all those trees lining it and topped with snow...beautiful.
