We got about a foot of snow since yesterday. I volunteered to go out first and start the shoveling (mostly so Gene could finish it 😉 but we got really fortunate that one of our neighbors was passing by with his snow blower, saw me shoveling and ran a couple of paths each side of the car and then up to the steps where I was shoveling. Made things a lot easier — what a nice guy!

I was also lucky enough to have the Joey Zone sing his new shoveling-on-St. Patrick’s-day song over the phone (no, I can’t do it justice here; you’ll have to wait for the MP3). Guess I have the luck of the Irish today (the good kind, that is)!
