Out of the Blue

Well we had our first major snow of the season yesterday, there was probably about six inches on the ground when I shoveled, and it looks like I have a little follow-up shoveling to do today for what fell overnight. I was very pleased with getting to shovel our new sidewalk, as having an unbroken surface to clear makes things a lot easier than our old broken up walkway, though while this makes the process less aggravating, it doesn't make it effort-free, as I managed to get a blister on my thumb through my heavy winter gloves. Actually, that's probably more a tribute to my girly callous-free hands as anything, so I should probably have just kept that detail to myself.

I don't know how anyone can find it "shocking" that people are happy to do such things. Do they not follow the news?

Watching the BBC documentary Five Steps to Tyranny should be required of anyone wanting to live as part of society.
