Things I Did with the Snow Today (Illustrated!)

December 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Things I did with the snow today, in chronological order:
Enjoyed the white blanket visible from the dining-room window (6:30 a.m.)

Went out with the girls for sledding, a surprisingly violent snowball fight (Vivi is ruthless), and some snowman-making (8:15 a.m.-9:30 p.m.)

Watched the snowfall pick up markedly (10:30 a.m.)

Rode my fatbike for 70 minutes in the Arboretum, covering a whopping 7 miles! (11:30 a.m.-12:40 p.m.)

Shoveled the driveway and walk (12:40 p.m.-1:00 p.m.)

Watched the neighbors’ crazy labradoodle “hide” and “find” her favorite red ball in the snow, clearly insanely happy (2:30 p.m.)
Labradoodle Games

Put chickenwire fences around the patio bushes to prevent entramplement by the littles.
Enfenced Bushes

Cleared the driveway and walk again – using my Yooper scooper again (4:10 p.m.)

Drove over to campus for a social event (4:30 p.m.)

Enjoyed the social event with my beautiful wife (4:30-5:30 p.m.)
Weitz Center Party

Drove back home, plowing through a couple big snowbanks on the way (5:30 p.m.)

Settled onto the sofa with sore legs and a beer to watch the snow taper off on the other side of the living-room window (7:30 p.m.)
