It was a particularly snowy January. Following one evening snowfall, my step-father insisted we all get up early and shovel. Being one of the nicest guys in the universe - and suspecting he'd be the only guy left in the house - my roommate offered to help. He didn't know what he was in for.
Having spent one winter in Iowa already, he knew what snow was all about. But having never shoveled before, I don't think he fully appreciated how heavy the stuff can be. Or how cold it can get. When you grow up in a coastal tropical climate, any kind of snow is a bit of a system shock, I think. What a way to start the day!
