It is January 11th and here in Madison we have had no appreciable snowfall yet. I am excited about the predicted 3-6" of snow coming in the next 24 hours. I love shoveling snow, especially at night when it is all quiet and the only thing you can hear is an occasional car crunching on the snow or the sound of my neighbors shoveling their driveways. I am sure my late father would be amazed to hear me talk about how much I love shoveling snow since it was a major point of contention in my teenage years in Michigan. I have a new shovel, a new pair of gloves and a new ice breaker...I am ready to clear a path!
One other thing about the snow, it makes watching the Packers way more fun when there is snow on the ground. I don't know why that is...but it is.
