Getting my snow muscles
February 18, 2014 - Bennet Goldstein
A quick look at my arms lately and I’m noticing some muscle tone that wasn’t there before? Have I beefed up my workouts at the gym? No. Have I been “Sweating to the Oldies” with Richard Simmons? No. Have I been a homeowner having to shovel endless amounts of snow this winter? Bingo! I’m sure I’m the 1 millionth person to complain about shoveling snow this year. I’m actually getting into a routine where I just expect to shovel snow every two days. My piles on the edge of my driveway have almost got so high that I need a ladder to toss the shoveled snow to the top of them. And how about that heart-sinking feeling when you’ve got the driveway done and then the plow comes by and gives you more work? I guess we just deal with the winter and remember those mild winters we had in recent years. I think after this winter we’ll be due for a few mild winters.
