It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our
cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift
down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses print. So romantic we felt like
newlyweds again. I love snow!

December 9
We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of
the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the
whole world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had! Shoveled for the
first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the
sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks
And closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life!

The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment! My neighbor
tells me not to worry-we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on
Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter,
that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is
such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The
cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up
by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came
back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have
to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way.
I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for
the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood
stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in
Alaska, after all.

December 16
Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway putting down
salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very

December 17
Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was
off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but
stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood
stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't
believe I'm freezing to death in my own livingroom.

December 20
Electricity is back on, but had another 14 inches of the damn stuff last
night. More shoveling! Took all day. The damn snowplow came by twice. Tried to
find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I
think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a
snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think
they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill
me. I think he's lying.

December 22
Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white ****
fell today, and it's so cold, it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45
minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to piss. By the
time I got undressed, pissed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried
to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter, but he says
he's too busy. I think the ******* is lying.

December 23
Only 2 inches of snow today. And it warmed up to 0.The wife wanted me to
decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she, nuts?!! Why didn't
she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think she's lying.

December 24
6 inches - Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. Thought I was
having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a bitch who drives that snow
plow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls and beat him to death with my
broken shovel. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to
finishshoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and
throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing
Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was too busy watching for
the damn snowplow.

December 25
Merry f---ing Christmas! 20 more inches of the damn slop tonight - Snowed in
The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God, I hate the snow! Then the
snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with
my shovel. The wife says I have a bad attitude. I think she's a fricking idiot.
If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her
into the microwave.

December 26
Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's
really getting on my nerves.

December 27
Temperature dropped to -30 and the pipes froze; plumber came after 14 hours of
waiting for him, he only charged me $1,400 to replace all my pipes.

December 28
Warmed up to above -20. Still snowed in. The BITCH is driving me crazy!!!

December 29
10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's
the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30
Roof caved in. I beat up the snow plow driver, and now he is suing me for a
million dollars, not only for the beating I gave him, but also for trying to
shove the broken snow shovel up his ass. The wife went home to her mother. Nine
more inches predicted.
December 31
I set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8
Feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am
I tied to the bed?
