The snow came, just like they said it would, but it didn’t stop us from going to the farmer’s market just the same as we do almost every Saturday. It came close to stopping us, if only because My Darling B didn’t have any boots to wear, just her regular street shoes, but since the farmer’s market is at the Monona Center and we can park in the ramp, she didn’t have to walk through any slush to get there. Neither did she have to worry about the snow or slush to shop for groceries at the co-op, and when we stopped at Batch Bakehouse for some of their fresh-baked yumminess I let her hop out of the car after pulling into someone’s newly-shoveled driveway before parking the car. And that got her safely around town before we stopped at Monona Bootery so she could find a pair of new winter boots and we wouldn’t have to even think about parking shenanigans like that ever again.

I was going to completely blow off shoveling the driveway until tomorrow, but just after we finished a scrumptious lunch (B whipped up a cheese spread made with sun-dried tomatoes and all manner of good things) our own T-Dawg stopped by to see if us old folk needed any help clearing the snow off the sidewalk and driveway, so I suited up and we each took a shovel in hand to finish off the job in two shakes. Then he came in to sit for a few minutes and swap stories with us before heading off to scare up some lunch for himself.
