    Snow is already falling this morning. I expect to be out there again tonight when I get home. I also snowblow the driveways for the two old people who live on the block. One sent me a thank you note and a box of Frango mints. That was nice but certainly not market rate compensation.

    There is a certain Zen spirituality created while snowblowing on a cold night when no one else is out.

    I don't really shovel my driveway, which usually works out for me fine. But due to the super cold temps and frozen buildup, the sideskirt partially fell off my car as I pulled out of my driveway the other day. So I'm sitting at the stop sign in front of my house, a sort-of major intersection and confirmed that the scraping noise I heard was indeed my sideskirt which was dragging from where it remained attached at the front.

    So what to do... I couldn't fix it there at the stop sign. I couldn't back up or it'd REALLY rip off. So I waited for the road to clear and did a U-turn in the intersection, then pulled back into my driveway, where I secured the skirt with zip ties, as the little knobby thingies that usually hold it on were missing.

    Should be good til the same thing happens again...
