Lots and lots of snow. It’s winter again, overnight.

My plan for today was to meet up with some other mums like last Friday, but I cancelled that when I saw the state of the roads (20 cm of snow) and the public transport system (trains delayed by up to 60 minutes). So we had a boring day at home.

Shoveled snow in the afternoon for 30 minutes. The deepest drifts reached above the tops of my boots. In half an hour I barely cleared a path through the garden and half the width of the stairs down to the street. Just as I got there a snow plough passed by and deposited a wall of snow, half a metre high, right in front of me. More shovelling followed.

Now: somewhat tired back muscles after shovelling and lots of babywearing (since the stroller wasn’t really an option today).
