Someday We'll be too Old to Shovel

shoveling that snowIt took us over 2 hours to shovel out the driveway yesterday morning.  Those are the kind of days that make us think that having a snow blower would be nice.  Most of the time, shovels work just fine.  We either don't get that much snow at once, or we can shovel it a time or two while it's coming down so we don't have to do it all at once.  It's rare that it snows and blows all night long so that the driveway is covered with knee-deep drifts in the morning.  And most of the time we just think of shoveling as good exercise.

Now, when we get older and can't handle it anymore, we'll have to think about getting that snow blower, finding someone else to shovel our driveway, or maybe we could just buy a house in Hawaii and get away from the snow altogether.  That would definitely be nice.  Of course, there's just a tiny bit of difference between the $600 or so it would cost for the snow blower and the cost of that new house.  I guess I better start saving now!  I wonder if this mortgage calculator can help me figure out how much money I will need to save?

In the meantime, I'm just going to be thankful that we're physically able to shovel our own driveway and that it doesn't usually pile up quite so high.  If you'd like, you can check out my snow pictures.  Yes, everyone else was sharing their pictures of the Blizzard of 2011, Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, etc. so I figured I'd share too.  When IF I ever get that house in Hawaii, when everyone else is sharing snow pictures and blizzard stories, I'm going to share pictures of the beach! 

Is that mean?

Nah, not mean at all. People up to their knees in snow enjoy looking at beach photos.
