Snow, snow, snow and yet more snow

Our friendly neighbour has been complaining to the local paper and the local council for a couple of weeks that they have not been clearing the path alongside our house this winter as they have in years gone by. The result is that we (and I assume everyone else living adjacent to the road) had a letter from the council on Friday telling us that we have to clear the path.


That was 1½ hours on Friday and then another hour clearing snow on Saturday and Sunday. I think we have had about 40 cm since Friday so it is really piling up now.

At least the big and little kids are enjoying it.

    Is that hill the snow the snow you have cleared?
    Llooks great fun - clearing snow may be as good as cycling for the bod.

    Fortunately we in Britain only clear our paths at risk of being sued should some unfortunate pedestrian slip following our efforts and demand damages.
    Hence the paths are like ice rinks and we are forced to walk on the road until the council put sand on the paths.
