Shoveling, Shoveling, Shoveling

My mom's town in Massachusetts was crushed by last week's ice storm, and more storms this weekend aren't anything to sneeze at. Here in Minnesota I've shoveled my walk and driveway for the 4th time in two weeks, and more is coming tomorrow, along with a plunge to -5 degrees tonight that will stay a few days (darn that "global warming").

I'm whiney about this weather in 2008 - how did the pioneers and settlers deal with this crap in connestogas and sod houses?

As every generation says, I guess, there were giants in those days. Better men than me, at any rate.

I guess you weren't born in the wrong century after all.
