Wild Card/Tuesday — 12.22.15

After snow dumps like last night's, I ask myself whether or not it's time to get a snow blower. I've had this conversation with myself for decades here in Coeur d'Alene. Usually, the answer is no. I like the exercise involved in snow shoveling. And I don't like to store a snow blower for 9 or 10 months a year. OTOH, I do find myself feeling some what jealous after a ha-huge dump when I see the neighbors blowing snow while I shovel. I usually wait until they're done before proceeding outside to begin shoveling. I don't want to guilt them into helping. However, my next-door neighbor provided a solid last night by snow-blowing the sidewalk. Do you shovel or snow blow? You can answer that question or start your own thread with this Wild Card ...
