This was the kind of storm that would have been welcome in January. It's oh-so-pretty. And, in general, I don't really mind shoveling that much. I kinda like being outside in the winter. It's brisk. And shoveling is a good arm workout.
But in March ... not loving it as much.

This was the kind of storm where I had to shovel out the end of my driveway three times.
The first time was yesterday around 2 pm, after a majority of snow. The plow had come by once, but it would definitely be back. Magoo, Mike, and I all shoveled.
The second time was yesterday closer to 6:00. We'd eaten dinner (fortunately the power stayed on and the chili was hot.) The plow had indeed come back, so this snow was heavy and packed. Magoo and I shoveled.
The third time was this morning around 7:30am. There wasn't a large amount of snow blocking the driveway, but it had frozen solid overnight. I had to get the metal shovel out to break it up and then toss icy boulders out of the way. UNPLEASANT! I did it solo.
But the power stayed on. We were able to stay in. And now the sun is out.
I covered my daffodils. So, hopefully, when this passes, I will still be able to enjoy some pops of yellow and then get on with Spring.
