My dear wife Karen and I wondered how life at A Bitty Better would be when the first major snow hit our life in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.
We woke up in deep Monday morning.
Sunday’s weather forecasts had me prepared for early shovel action.
Yet you don’t really know what you’re going to face until you get out there and do it.
My socked-in driveway and buried vehicles took me 70 minutes to clear.
And when I came in to tell Karen I was finished, the plow came by to deposit a new pile, oh, three feet wide by a foot high at the end of the driveway.
I had enough time to clear it again, though. Waiting for me on my phone was a text from the library’s emergency system. The snow two miles away in the Village of Liverpool had convinced my bosses to close the Liverpool Public Library for the day.
I jumped on our Facebook and Twitter pages to alert our patrons not to attempt to visit us. They could still take advantage of all of the great benefits of our site LPL.org, though.

I wondered the rest of Monday how many more times I would shovel before leaving for work Tuesday.
Have you had a big snow where you live yet? Have you ever had this much snow to clear where you live? Would you now hire a snowplow guy if you were me or stubbornly cling to the shovel?
