Wheeee! Chet here, Folks - here I am out in the backyard enjoying my first snow. Excited doesn't even begin to describe how I felt when the Roommate let me out in this stuff for the first time. As you can see I'm just a blur for the camera as I raced hither and yon.
This is the classic downward dog yoga pose. The Roommate says you need to focus on a fixed point to execute this move. A bone works fine for me.
But I digress. The Roommate is allowing me to take over our blog today to show you this amazing trick that I learned to do in this stuff--snowball rolling. So, in five easy steps:
Step 1 - dig out one of the cement blocks that the Roommate chocks under the fence to keep me from digging out of the yard. Too big to carry, so. . .
Step 2 - . . .start rolling! At first it's so easy that I can stop to snack on a little snow. Not as good as a Slim Jim, but not bad.
Step 3 - take a moment to strategize when the ball gets too heavy. Work smarter, not harder is my motto.
Step 4 - Reverse direction makes easier rolling. Wonder why that Greek guy Sisyphus didn't figure this out when he kept trying to push that rock up a mountain?
Step 5 - Good enough for the first day since I had to go inside for my dinner. The next day I put in a few hours perfecting my first snow ball. If we get another snow this winter maybe I'll build a snowdog. Stay tuned and don't forget to enjoy the season you're in.
