Push comes to shovel - 3.13 #sol19 Story Challenge

I live in an apartment, so my snow shoveling responsibilities are minimal to nil. In fact, in the last decade, there's a good chance I've scooped more snow out of pits dug to scope back-country snowpacks during skiing forays than I have snow from stoops or sidewalks. Late Tuesday night, though, my brother-in-law relayed a message that his property needs shoveling love while he's away (or else he risks a municipal fine for neglecting his responsibilities).

As sweet, sweet justice would have it, the current storm is a nasty slushy one. I can only hope my efforts on his behalf will also amount to digging out of my own karmic hole.

  1. Think of all the endorphins you’ll generate from snowing. I’ve actually become fond of this task—as long as the snow is powder!

  2. I hope that the slush wasn't too bad to dig out of! I am with Glenda, I don't mind shoveling as long as it is not too heavy.

  3. "...the current storm is a nasty slushy one." Hope you've moved that stuff and are recovering (and feeling virtuous).

  4. I shovel because I have to, but my husband laughs at my love of mowing the lawn:)

  5. Fantastic title and ending line about karma. Shoveling can be so symbolic. Wishing you warmer weather soon!
