The icy breath of Old Man Winter has descended upon the upper midwest. The past two days have been very, very cold and blustery. I tried to shovel the ice... Yes, ICE... (on two different occassions) from my driveway yesterday. After 10-15 minutes, my fingers were going numb in my gloves. After all the rain that fell on Sunday, I still have a sheet of frozen ice in my garage!! I'm not alone, however... I heard my neighbor chipping away at hers with a spade. A coworker said her garage door was frozen shut due to the freezing rain. Later this week, forecasters are saying we will be hitting records lows. Ahhhh.... The joys of winter.
