The Worst of the Cold Front

An unexpected cold front came through and left a lot of snow. It’s a good thing that I was able to get an HVAC repair in NYC, because the week before the cold front hit, my HVAC system having some problems. Had I not gotten the repair done when I did, I would have been shivering in my home. Although I was able to enjoy the warmth of a working HVAC, there was one problem that I did have to face because of the cold front. I had to shovel all of the show out of my driveway and get it off of my car.

I used to shovel snow as a kid for money, and I hated it then, and I hate it as an adult. It doesn’t help that my driveway is so long. I covered myself in multiple layers and I could barely move when I took a step. Shoveling snow can get tiring quickly, especially since the snow can be heavy. I have no idea how I was able to even lift the shovel and the snow as a kid, because as an adult, I was having trouble, and it didn’t take long for my arms to start getting sore.

I had to take multiple breaks while shoveling the snow, and it seemed as if I would never get done. It felt like many hours had passed when I had gotten a fourth of the driveway shoveled, but it was only 20 minutes. Eventually I was able to get the driveway clear and my car cleaned off, but I didn’t want to go anywhere. I just walked back inside, turned up the heat, hopped in the shower, and then made myself a cup of hot chocolate with a lot of marshmallows and some whipped cream on top.
