We woke up to snow this morning. The weather network predicted 15-20 cm; we got over 20 cm. I measured over 9 inches of snow on the back deck; that’s 23 cm. Some of the drifts are about two feet deep. After spending an hour and a half shoveling snow (do you know how many shovelfuls that is…me either, but it’s a lot) you don’t want no Special K breakfast; you want fat and stodge because you’ve just burnt like a million calories. So the reason that Canadians eat so much bacon, my neighbour and I decided this morning, is because we shovel so much snow.
