Placeholder for a Snowy Morning

It is 6:00 AM here in NoVa, where we are digging out from varying amounts of snow. I got up at 4:00 (the usual workday time) and shoveled out our driveway and sidewalks.  We appear to have gotten about four or five inches of light, fluffy snow here, and it took about an hour and a half to clear it all away.

I'm now just about thawed out enough to take my shower and get ready to go to work ... the federal government is operating on a two-hour delay this morning*, and my bus line is running more-or-less on schedule, so I guess I don't have any excuse for not going in. Sigh.

I will try to put up my normal blog post this evening when I get home from work ... otherwise, see you tomorrow morning in this space.

Have a good day. Stay warm. More thoughts later.


* Oddly enough, today's delays in government were caused by inclement weather, and not by Republican intransigence and Democratic ineptitude.

Getting so much exercise so early in the morning is a bad way to start off a day. I hope yours improves, Bilbo!

That kind of exercise is bad for health; plus it sets a bad example for the rest of us.

Too cold here.

Sidewalks? At 4:00 am?

Our snow didn't amount to as much as predicted, and some schools were canceled. Oh well, a snow day on which it didn't snow.

Four A.M. is hard enough without also having to shovel the driveway. I hope the rest of the day was easier.
