Nivek saidAfter awhile, shoveling snow becomes a real drudgery. Lower back pain results after shoveling this frozen white shit. I have better, more enjoyable ways of keeping fit like running and cycling. Snowshoes and cross country skis are too expensive for my strained finances. I am ready for some warmer temps.roadbikeRob saidChallenge is a given. Misery is a choice.Nivek saidThere's no such thing as a bad winter, only a bad attitude.After awhile it gets impossible to keep a good attitude when the weather is always lousy with frigid temps., high winds, and endless snow. It has been a bad winter this year and I am ready for it to end. Now when the thaw does hit, we will see how many roads and highways will be in one piece, most likely not very many because potholes are already a serious problem.
Life is what you make of it.
I dress warm and use snow tires. My only regret is that it has been colder than I like for doing winter sports, but I still take walks a few times a day. Love the way the city looks covered in white.
When you shovel snow look at it as a lucky chance to get some exercise, not a drudgery. How many times have you been sledding this winter? Snow shoeing? Cross country skiing? Ice skating? Hiking? Or would you rather just think about potholes?
