Shoveling Snow

So, I grabbed a snow shovel and started digging and digging and digging some more until I was standing over the shovel, panting, out of breath.

Did I mention there were eighteen inches of snow?

I finally managed to clear a small path and took a break. A few minutes later, I tried again, made more progress and took another break. At this rate, I would be shoveling snow until July.

Then, there was a knock on my door.
