Don't overdo the shoveling, Bob!  But you sound as though you've still got power and internet, so life isn't too bad ....

I'll second that!  I heard on the BBC World Service that often some of the casualties of heavy snow falls are people who have had heart attacks while shovelling snow outside their houses, rather than getting stuck in snowdrifts, and they were warning not to shovel snow unless you were already fit and used to taking strenuous exercise.  I can't say this had ever occurred to me before.

I suspect that shovelling snow is like gardening - the best at the job drink lots of tea. A few shovels, a cup of tea, a few shovels, a cup of tea, a few shovels.....  :)

I have heard RUM keeps you warmer, after all they did dispense on Navy ships.   :D

Alas, no rum, but we did stock some Guinness!

Yes, Happy Australia Day from me, too! It's the correct day for me, but not for you. Sort of sorry!  :-[

- to all you ozzies!  ;D

Amazing that I found exactly this on the Western Australian wildlife project - what a co-incidence  ;)

If any of you fancy a mad session at the other end of the planet - Up Helly Aa is being broadcast live: http://uphellyaa.com/
