Until last Wednesday, I had not needed to get reacquainted with my snow shovel. Usually, we start having some winter experiences with slick streets, yucky parking lots and snow-covered driveways.
We checked to make sure we didn’t need anything of importance in our house. We then settled in to watch television and updates about the approaching winter weather. I felt very comfortable that night that neither of us had anything on our calendars until the weekend.
For the last couple of years, we have had my husband and myself out to clear snow from our driveway. He has a snow-blower and takes care of the driveway while I was busy shoveling the sidewalk.
As I watched the local news coverage of the weather and the streets, sometimes there was something shown that I really enjoyed watching. Most of the reporting was all about the Alberta Clipper storm.
Then the news crew went on to say another storm may bring snow to areas next week. I didn’t need to hear that.
