You know there's been too much snow when...

  • It's no longer "shovel, throw, shovel, throw" but "shovel, walk, throw, walk back".
  • You wish you'd bought a snow blower when you moved in 8 years ago.
  • Your property begins to remind you of Superman's Fortress of Solitude.
  • You begin to question the sanity of people who live even further north who get even more snow every year (they must have bought a snow blower when they moved in).
  • Your dad starts to call every time there's a snow storm to remind you that he does not even own a snow shovel or an ice scraper where he lives. Thanks Dad.
  • You hope they'll start the Olympic sport of Snow Flinging because your sure you'd make the US Team.
  • You wish were living in a dwelling where you were not the landlord responsible for keeping the drive way and walks clear.
  • The only thing keeping you from hiring someone else to do it is pride - all the neighbors around you shovel their own driveways.
  • You try thinking of shoveling as water resistance training - part of your New Year's resolution to get into better shape.
  • You wished your house had a two car garage used for parking the vehicles in, and you owned a snow blower.
  • You've been shoveling long enough to think up all of these reasons it's been snowing too much.
