Yes, I'm still tough enough to shovel this entire driveway by hand. I won't tell you it was exactly how I wanted to spend my day.
However, if I weren't so lazy, I wouldn't have had to do that. We went to bed with a dusting of snow, and woke up to 14-16 inches. Omer was supposed to go out for breakfast. I had no clue we had gotten all this snow, and leaped out of bed to do the driveway, but the snowblower wouldn't start. His friend came and picked him up. I kept shoveling.
It took me 4 hours, but that was enough to make it so we could get out.
Of course, if I'd checked the snowblower before the very day I needed it there wouldn't have been this problem, right? Getting it running involved a trip to the dealer because I broke one shear pin because the auger was frozen into the dirt. Very bad not smiling face mea culpa.
Anyway, I got it going around 4 pm, and cleared the rest of the top and widened the bottom a little bit. I'm pretty sure I'll feel this tomorrow- already taking ibuprofen, but I got 'er done. 3 more inches of snow on the way.
There is no other news. I've spent all day on this. Bell choir practice was cancelled, but I'm headed to writer's group in a few minutes.
