The task - the first time of many over the next couple of months I assume - was such a novelty, I felt I just had to write about it!
That amount of snow does not disappear overnight!
The city was methodically clearing the roads and pavements, but T and I are responsible for the patch of land outside the front of the building, as well as the area at the back where the car is parked.
We successfully managed to put it off for a couple of days, but the time finally came to do our bit of clearing.
The car and surrounding area was first, but where to start on this giant snowball??
Once we had cleared enough to be able to actually move the car, we parked it further up the alley and set to cleaning the space it had left.
No sooner had we put the last of the salt on the path, then it started to snow again…
