I have spent all morning chopping the one inch thick ice on the walkway and driveway with the hopes to get the car out. I got about 1/4 of the walkway done when my hands started cramping up. So I quit that and started the drive. I have 1/2 the turn around and 2 small tire paths cleared and my hands are really hurting now. The sun is so low this time of year that there is constant moving shadow from the house next door on the drive. And it is an upgrade from the garage to the top. Now, if I could only get to the top, then it is clear enough to park the car there overnight. But the lower part is so solid frozen I can't even put a dent in it. OK, now that I have resigned my self to being house bound today,,,,my hands are almost too cramped to type, I don't think I'll be able to work a pair of needles. LOL, is this what they call "murphy's law"?
Now where is that warm tea! :-)

Ouch! I'm just waiting for an ice storm to hit us; we don't have any rock salt yet...at least I don't have to go out & shovel, etc. -- the baby is my excuse this year!
