Glad to see all of you in the UK are surviving your freak storm... Here in Calgary we are quite used to it and probably 90% of us have 4WD/AWD vehicles. Unfortunately 90% of them think snow tyres aren't necessary.... 😬!
I don't post very often, but I read everything from our special club everyday... first thing I do every morning no fail!!!
We got about 20cm of snow on Friday. This means that Saturday requires snow removal.
By Law!!! You are required to shovel the public sidewalk in front of your house, which is all I have been capable of doing this winter, with a struggle. I would end up with a flare that debilitated me for at least 3-4 days. (Once, I ended up with wrist drop in my left hand that lasted for 4-6 weeks and a boost in Pred from 10 back up to 12.5)
That said... I am down to 4mg right now... have more energy than I can remember having, so at 7:30 yesterday morning I ran to the Petro station to fill my Jerry Can and started my Snow Blower for the first time this year. Once I started it, I couldn't stop. First I cleared the sidewalks of my neighbours... 8 in total. Did my driveway, my next door neighbours ( they are in Hawaii) and another 3. Felt tired and a little sore after 4 hours, but I would have felt that before PMR.
Next worry was how would I feel today... sore and stiff, but that is, I'm sure, because I used muscles I haven't dared to for the last 11 months.
We shall see how the rest of the week goes. My OH is away on business, first time in a year. I will be Mr. Mom and Mr. Dad to our 4 year old daughter for the next 5 days.
