The weather girl predicted some snow for today and it started to come down about 30 minutes ago and already everything is white. It is a beautiful site but I am glad that I will not be the one shoveling all that snow later on. My neighbor does the snow shoveling for us. We pay him well for that chore. Do you do your own snow shoveling or have someone do it for you?

I do it myself, I asked to some workers in the past, they all pretended being busy and nobody came (of course I would have paid them). Often my neighbor helps.

If you have to do it sometimes, please be very careful

@marlina This year we invite no one, we surely will stay home during all the holidays, if we do not need to move the car, I will wait until the snow melts.

We don't have snow here. Our weather is hot and wet. We have only two seasons, the dry and rainy

@marlina It's not. It's dangerous when it's a rainy season for there are so many strong typhoons visiting our country.

we didn't have an actual snow for 4-5 years and I am happy I don't have to shovel anymore

So I guess it is only "once in a blue moon" that you get snow over there,

@marlina yes, it became like this in recent years and global warming might be behind this.

We have a snow blower and have done it ourselves mostly. Sometimes I just let it melt but then it turns to ice. One day we may have to shift to getting it done but I don't want to pay for that yet. Hopefully by the r time it does snow I'll be able to get into a pair of shoes again. Right now I'm wearing slippers even outside. My husband has done it a little bit he has a prosthetic and doesn't need to fall anymore than me.

@marlina eventually we won't have a choice either but I'm hoping that can wait a few more years yet.

Snow removal is included in my monthly HOA fees. It's well worth the money and they do a good job.

If I ever got enough snow to have to shovel it then my county would be in a state of emergency. Heck, we panic if we see snowflakes which happens every few years.

I never experienced snow. Glad this. I would love to see it, but cleaning is so much hassle. So I will just see it from me Tv

I do the prudent thing: when snow storms are expected, I go someplace warm. My next door neighbor, God bless him, shovels it for me.

We do our own, unless maintenance comes by first and does it. We also shovel out our car when there's enough, as the plows take forever to come.

I do not shoveling snow, i didn't even when we living up near Prescott, Ontario. My husband loves running around with a snow blower. I love to watch the snow falling down making the world look so pristine and beautiful.

Snow is pretty to look at but not so pretty after the snowplows clear the roads and leave a big trace at the end of the driveway
