Lynn–signs of spring

Hmm–well that might be a bit overstating it–but I was delighted to see that the temperature will be climbing all of this coming week and might get close to 50 by the end of the week.

I’m feeling buried in snow here in Massachusetts. I had someone come to shovel my roof last week after the roof of a house in my neighborhood collapsed into the inhabitants’ living room–one article I read said that the accumulation of snow we’ve had this winter is equivalent to parking a couple of SUVs on the roof. Anyhow, all that roof snow ended up in big snow mountains outside my front and back doors. The guys carved a path through the front door snow mountain but I don’t think I’ll be exiting via the rear door for a while.

This is all to say that I’ve got a touch of cabin fever and have not been exercising much other than my usual stair climbing at work and periodic bouts wrestling the snow blower up and down the driveway. I’m feeling very out of shape aerobically and my pants are starting to feel a bit snug so this has got to change. I did get out for short walks the past couple of days and hope to do so again today–the ice is finally beginning to melt from the roads and sidewalks in my neighborhood.

How is everyone else faring? I see we’ve all gone silent for the winter.

    Lynn, sounds like the sort of winters we used to have long long time ago. When we could build tunnels and igloos without having to toot any snow from one end of the garden to another. All’s well here in northern Germany. Glad to hear that you are in good health.
