My mind tends to wander when I shovel.

To the tune of Dashing Through the Snow

Mouse-tracks in the snow,
Heading for the trap.
No carcasses in there
Hoping they'll come back.

Doggie's chasing squirrels,
'Round and 'round the tree.
Squirrel's way up high,
Chattering with glee.

Chorus
Squirrels here, mouse tracks there
critters everywhere,
first day of snow
lots more to go
springs several months away
(refrain)

The neighbour's cursing loud,
His snowblower won't start.
If I gave a f*ck,
I might just help him out.

The other neighbour's cool,
He says "come in my shop".
Offer's me a drink
Didn't even have to think.

Chorus...and fade out

Love it! Reminds me of a toned down John Valby. If you Google him and get offended, do not blame me. I posted NO link!

My wife says I'm good at turning existing lyrics into all things dirty... I'll have to give it a go.

Ha! You must feel like you're back in Toronto.:)

Conversely, we had 9" here this week and the road in front of my house was clean when I got up in the morning. When I lived in St. Catharines, our street went days before it got plowed and sometimes never did. Cities just don't seem to have the equipment and manpower for clearing the snow quickly. At least that is true of southern Ontario cities. If they got the snow we get here, they would be crippled most of the winter.

that was the first time i drove in the snow in 11 yrs. i am pretty happy with this little hyundai. i am using alot more gas now that i am traveling so far, but i don't want to think about what it might cost if i was driving the trans am i sold before coming to toronto. that car was terrible in the snow. i feel like it was lucky or something that i just had the timing belt, water pump, and spark plugs replaced according to the mileage thing in my manual. i wont have to worry about those things as i drive down the freeway alot faster than i really want to.
