It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our
Cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift
Down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So Romantic we felt like Newlyweds again. I love snow!

We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the
landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a lovelier place in the whole
world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had! Shoveled for the first
time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the
sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life!

The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment! My neighbor
tells me not to worry - we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on
Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of
winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's
possible. Bob is such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The
cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came
back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would
have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape
this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for
the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a
wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We
aren't in Alaska, after all.

Ice storm this morning. Fell on my arse on the ice in the driveway putting down
salt. Hurt like heck. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very

Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off
for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare
at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood
stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room.

Electricity is back on, but had another 14 inches of the dang stuff last night.
More shoveling! Took all day. The dang snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I
think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about
buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March.
I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it
done and bill me. I think he's lying.

Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white crap
fell today, and it's so cold, it probably won't melt till August. Took
me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to pee.
By the time I got undressed, peed and dressed again, I was too tired to
shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the
winter, but he says he's too busy. I think the a-hole is lying.


Only 2 inches of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to
decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she, nuts?!! Why
didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think
she's lying.

6 inches - snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the S-O-B who drives that snow
plow, I'll drag him through the snow by his "scrotum" and beat him to death
with my broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to
finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and
throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to
sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy
watching for the dang snowplow.

Merry f-ing Christmas! 20 more inches of the dang slop tonight - snowed in,
the idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God, I hate the snow! Then the
snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with
my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a frickin'
idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time,
I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.

Still snowed in. Why the heck did I ever move here? It was all HER idea.
She's really getting on my nerves.

Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze; plumber came after 14 hours of waiting for him, he only charged me $1,400 to replace all my pipes.

Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. The BI*CH is driving me crazy!!!


10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in.
That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

Roof caved in. I beat up the snowplow driver, and now he is suing me for a
million dollars. Not only for the beating I gave him, but also for trying to
shove the broken snow shovel up his arse. The wife went home to her mother. Nine more inches predicted.

I set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

Feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am
I tied to the bed?
