The First of February came with a heavy snowfall, that started in the night and added up to the 30 cms we had got a week ago. This caused the day’s plans to go somewhat askew – we were supposed to drive to the supermarket for provisions, and will do it tomorrow instead, and spent the warmest hours of the afternoon shoveling snow off the lane.
This is the sort of thing I should post as an example of the funny surreal things that happen to writers when they should be writing instead. Shoveling snow or, like two days ago, running barefooted in the snow to try and catch the postman before he disappears.
What a cartload of laughs, uh?
You read of things like that and instantly you decide to follow me on Patreon.
But I’m being uselessly snarky.
I did need a bit of exercise, and shoveling snow was a good opportunity.
I keep writing, and tonight it’s going to be one long writing session. Also, I’m going to try a new writing trick. Then on the weekend I’ll be working on another project.

Is that photo where you live? It’s GORGEOUS!
We got snow today (Feb 1st), too, in central Virginia, but not as much as you did. I like your attitude toward shoveling snow. It is good exercise.:-)

Yes, the place in the photo is not far from where I live (and that doesn’t look this good). It’s the Montferrat region of north-western Italy. Wine country. The hills hereabouts are beautiful, and very quiet.
And I guess we are all getting our fair share of the Arctic Vortex 😛

Ha! You’ll hate this; I spent six hours at my desk editing because it was too hot to go outside today! Blessed heatwaves….

It’s part of the fun of being on the opposite sides of the planet – I’ll be complaining about the heat when you are in the mid of winter.

And I WON’T complain about the cold… I love actually, no, I will complain, I just miss it right now 🥵

I prefer spring and autumn, both for the climate and the colors of the countryside.
