The big brush-off

I woke up this morning to eight inches of snow on our cars. I went outside to brush off the cars and start shoveling the walk and driveway. But the cars took so much time I barely got to the driveway. Every winter, I remember how much work shoveling is but forget what a task the brushing is, especially after big snowfalls. Besides the time it takes to get that much snow off the top of the car, I added eight inches of snow onto the driveway.

Luckily, I won't have to shovel too much the rest of the day -- the temperature is already in the 40s and the snow is melting. I hope this doesn't create flooding for other people, but I won't be sad when this snow is gone in three days.
