I have a couple red things related to the preparations for winter that has consumed several days during the past two weeks. First is the snow blower I will walk behind this morning. As I prepare this post on Sunday night, it is snowing. According to the forecast, we could have anywhere between 3″(8cm) and 7″(18cm). Three inches, I could push around with a shovel, but I just heard the snow plow drive by. The pile of snow it pushes up onto our driveway will require the machine.
The other recent red item is the snow shovel I will use to clear the snow from our front porch and ramp. Those surfaces are Trex, and Trex requires a plastic shovel. We have several, Trex surfaces so we have several shovels (I don’t like trudging through the snow to get from surface to surface. The shovel in the front stays behind our mailbox during the winter. This past year, I neglected to move it in the spring. Over the course of the summer, the plastic coating of the handle was consumed by Virginia Creeper. The vine wrapped around the shovel handle and literally ripped the plastic off. I removed the ‘D’ handle at the top and painted the metal red.
Warning – I had to include a picture of my favorite red head – I miss her very much, but she was the best and she deserves to be included today.
