Little guy, big snow

Our deck got slammed with snowdrifts during the Midwestern monster snowstorm. We only shoveled a small path from our backdoor to the driveway and the top of this pile still comes up to my chest. We also have a wicked drift on the back roof. Half of the window to my upstairs bathroom is blocked with snow.

Luckily, we have a helper.

We use a sleigh shovel on our driveway, and it really came in handy for this deep snow.  You scoop up a big load and then push it over to the side to dump it off.

The drifts did make for some interesting shovel steering, though.

Henry had a BLAST with shoveling.

I hope you are staying warm and having winter fun.

J and I debate the efficacy of the sleigh shovel. I like it but J would rather stick with the regular one. We had not recognized its utility as a transportation device, however!
