Depending on your age snow can be fun or frustrating.
Age 2-17 + snow + shovel = fun
Age 18 & up + snow + shovel = frustration
EXAMPLE #A: Kids 2 – 17, parents, and grandparents dig in the snow with their shovels to create an igloo snow tunnel. They had fun. Can you tell the grandfather is a top caliber Engineer? I can.
EXAMPLE B: Age 18 & up digging in the snow with their shovels to extricate a UPS truck loaded with packages that are stuck on a steep drive. The truck and packages to be delivered refuse to move up the hill but show a strong propensity to slide off the driveway destroying a yard light and a maple tree. If the adults digging in the snow are not careful, the truck could roll over and pancake the homeowner. A UPS truck crushing a homeowner could make for a funny funeral as friends and family gaze into the open casket and then bust out laughing as they spot the UPS logo imprinted on the front of the guest of honor’s winter jacket.
In summing up, it is interesting to note that although the parties in both photos shoveled snow, the adults 180 feet east of the kids and the kids 180 feet west of the adults have an entirely different perspective and attitude when it comes to shoveling snow. Fun Vs. Frustration.
Perspective and attitude. Aah yes, what a difference age plus 180 feet can make.
