    I'm on what's called the South Shore of Massachusetts (but I'm not on the ocean). It's been snowing since noon, and it's been coming down at time at a rate of 4" an hour! I was out there shoveling, mainly because I just didn't want to sit in the house and it's so gorgeous out there, as soon as I shoveled to one end of the walkway I'd turn around and do it again! Did my neighbor's driveway (elderly mother and daughter live there, both are extremely overweight and shouldn't be moving snow), now hubby is home, so he's snowblowing the driveway. We've probably got five inches out there so far, we may get a foot. Yippee!! I love snow [​IMG]

    My DH thinks I'm crazy for shoveling the run, but the girls love it. They have one place they like to dust bathe, so if I get it shoveled right away, it stays dry. The love that, it's so funny to see.

    We've got snow in NY too! And I love it whether or not I have to shovel it.

    I like to x-c ski all through the woods in the quiet of the new fallen snow! [​IMG]

    Already shoveled a trail for the chooks too.

    Quote:My 5 yo son and I were out till after 8 in our snow shoes. It's rare that we get enough snow to enjoy them so we took advantage. He doesn't have school on Fridays so I could let him stay up a bit later than usual. It was beautiful! We walked right down the middle of our street (it's a dead end). It was so quiet!
