it was a long long snow day

And thus started my winning entry for the Bulwer-Lyton fiction contest. Seriously: Today’s snowstorm was exactly like the Boxing day snowstorm. Same amount of snow, same mess and same wind. They could have been twins (I personally experienced the evilness of twins, you can trust me on that).

I’ve found a good way to describe the snowstorm today and (I hear) it’s being used all over town now too: ‘today it was pouring snow’. Yes, you heard that right, and you heard it here at Xsamplex first!

But to keep it on topic: I hope this was the last snowstorm of the season. I’m tired of it. I really don’t mind the shoveling. But just this afternoon, while clearing the driveway I was thinking if there is an easier way to clear the driveway without using a shovel. For a moment I had this ‘Eureka’ feeling: Why not just use the ‘roll the snow-ball technique’ instead? Wouldn’t that work, I wonder? But then, I don’t want neighbours to think that I’m going to make a gigantic snowman.
