The first snow of 2011-2012 was on December 9th.
I can handle or, more appropriately, not handle this. I brushed off the Jeep and left everything else lie.
We received another inch overnight Friday into Saturday.
Again, I didn't handle it. It will be 90% gone by evening tonight, anyway.
The weather people are saying 50-58 inches in my neck of the woods this winter. If we assume "winter" constitutes December through mid-March, that's about 106 days to spread this nearly 6 feet across. The Jeep and I can handle up to 4 inches without shoveling, although I should still shovel the driveway apron to prevent ice patches from forming. If 4 inches was the maximum we receive all winter, I can handle this.
I took a deep breath, brushed off the Jeep, and headed out for my Saturday errands. This is the easy part.
