Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 333: Fresh Snowfall

Another weather system sprinkled about 3 inches of sparkly fresh snowfall onto Marshfield last night. The new layer made everything look much prettier this morning, but it also meant that I had to spend 30 minutes engaged in one of my least favorite activities -- shoveling snow. Bleah.

At the moment, the worst part is that there's not much place to put any removed snow, as the piles on either side of Mom's driveway are already over my head! At least it was light and dry and fluffy, not heavy, but this is definitely something I do not miss at all about living in a colder climate.

Just add screaming children waving garlic in my face while I'm shoveling heavy, wet snow, and that would be pretty much a good example of one of my levels of Dante's Inferno.
