Man-made Avalanche

This morning I was struck with the harsh realization that there are less than two weeks left before Liz and I leave for Milwaukee for the holidays. Less than two weeks to finish all my holiday shopping... even worse, less than two weeks to print a HUGE amount of wedding photographs to be included among the gifts. I need to start that immediately, if not sooner. This is the point where the holidays start to stress me out. I need to get focused quick if I'm going to get this stuff done. And we haven't even started our wedding thank you cards yet. Cripes.

I might be able to get some of that started tonight, but my primary goal this evening is to work on shoveling off the roof. We live in a building with a flat roof. Normally this is a great thing. We have a very nice roof deck, with a grill and picnic table up there. Unfortunately, we also have a couple of feet of snow. It used to be light and fluffy snow. This evening is supposed to bring a mix of rain and sleet that will convert that light fluff into heavy icy mess. Key word: HEAVY. We live in an old building... it would be no fun at all if our roof collapsed into our living room. No fun at all. So tonight I get to spend some time shovelling snow off the top of a 3 story building. Look out below!
