And not a plow to be found. Actually, that’s not true. I think my city handled its recent record-breaking dump of 50 centimeters of snow quite well. Who’s not handling the snow so well is me, simply because, as I mentioned in my previous post, I’m caring for a friend’s home while they’re on vacation, and that includes their double-wide monstrosity of a driveway. I’ve been by three times over the past 24 hours for hour-long shoveling binges – any longer and I lose all feeling in my forearms. There’s still at least half the driveway to be shoveled out before this weekend, when it will warm up just enough to begin freezing rain. This winter sucks.
But if you’re stuck shoveling your way out of thigh-deep snow (seriously, at one point as I was swimming my way up to my friend’s front door, I thought about how uncomfortably close the snow was coming to MY northern climes, if you catch my drift) you should absolutely have a fly, seasonally appropriate manicure like this one, featuring KB Shimmer’s Snow Much Fun. I love these kind of polishes because they get the thematic job done without the need to break out a bunch of intensive nail art supplies. Not that I could have done that in the first place – everything below my elbows ACHES, and I don’t think I could hold a detail brush steady enough to eek out any kind of design. I reiterate: This winter sucks!
