An Annoying Amount of Snow

Nor’Easter? We were supposed to get a ton of snow yesterday but ended up with an annoying amount of snow. For those of you who live in climes that do not have snow, let me explain: an annoying amount is enough snow that needs to be shoveled but not enough that it’s worth taking out the snowblower. That’s annoying, and what I’m looking at. So now you know what I’ll be doing in a few minutes (after coffee and bitching a little more about the snow).

Overall, I probably end up shoveling less snow than if I had to use the snowblower (walkways and deck have a good amount of area), but it doesn’t make it any easier. I’m sure that the snow, because it was mixed with rain, will be wet and heavy.

As I shovel, I’ll have music with me, as it makes the work go easier. Today’s podcast has lots of good shoveling choices, with these artists: Squeeze, Crowded House, Paul Kelly, The Action, The Creation, the Smoke, the Who, the Smiths, the Cure, Ultravox, Depeche Mode, Link Wray, Chuck Berry, and Bo Diddley.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year.

I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
