Well not quite…actually it’s a bit of an exaggeration… there have surely been bigger snowmen throughout the ages but I must say this is the biggest snowman I’ve ever built on my own and my first one ever in New Brunswick!
We woke up today to another snowstorm blowing into Atlantic Canada! That makes one storm of some sort every week for the past month! Storm surges, freezing rain, tropical depressions, you name it and we’ve had it…of course we were given a break and didn’t have a white Christmas but the snow is here now!
This morning we had 20cm! It was big fluffy flakes drifting in a calm sky, cloudy and just around freezing…I knew that there wouldn’t be time to waste and after a cup of coffee got on my booties to go shovel the driveway. Yep, you heard me, shovel the driveway. I know that since we’ve been in New Brunswick we have seen most people have snow blowers to do the work but we’re old school and prefer to get some exercise while we shovel.
Of course we might change our tune and get a deluxe snow thrower by the time winter is over…maybe they all know something we don’t about living in New Brunswick…oh well it was a good workout today and we both burned some calories and got some good cardio with shoveling all the thick snow.
I could barely lift the snowman parts they were so heavy, the middle snow ball almost beat me! When I finally got it all put together, with potato eyes and a turnip nose, it was at least 7 feet tall! So maybe it’s not the biggest snowman in the world but I’m still pretty proud of it!
