28. January, 2004 - mixed bag

More shovelling yesterday. I cleaned out some of the area in front of my garage. Initially I was just going to shovel out enough space so I could set out the trash and an old dishwasher, but realized that I should clear the path for my car, so I wouldn’t end up with an ice-patch right where I need traction in order to pull into the garage. In the course of shovelling, I met a neighbor across the alley and talked to him until we’d both cooled down. Then I later met the neighbor’s son who finished clearing the area between our garages. I guess the upside of the snowfall is that it gets many of us outside at about the same time in the winter, so I won’t have to wait until spring to meet everyone who lives near me.
