Out of the Blue

We got a good dose of several inches of snow last night, and though the snow often brings warmer temperatures, this time around it did not impact the arctic chill we've had around here. On the bright side, this kept the stuff from getting sloppy or heavy or even packed down, so rather than tempt fate with the sun beating down, I just got out there and shoveled the snow while it was still being cooperative. Shoveling the light powder is not nearly as tiring as when it is wetter, and it went very quickly, but boy did I end up numb from the cold anyway. This is fun and all, but I am definitely ready for spring.
