Its another 19 degree morning, the wind has calmed, and its snowing. We are expecting maybe a total of three inches today here in Monroe County. I am dreading the day we get a shoveable amount of snow. Thank God I am young (39) and healthy! :) I can still swing a mean shovel. I shovel a path in my back yard each day of winter for the birds - to the heated birdbath and to the feeder. Its like a maze from the shining. That's what its looked like at many of my locations in the wintertime for the cats too. I've seen cats jumping in the air trying to get from wherever they were, to the shelter where the food is because the snow was so high. So I try to make it easier by clearing a path for them. But its exhausting. By the time I get home in weather like that, its two to two and half hours later since the time I left the house. And then its on to the full time job. No wonder I am half dead at 3 pm every day.
