Well, I survived my roof-shoveling experience. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The wind and snow stopped about as soon as I got on top of the trailer and didn't start up again until a couple hours later. The whole thing took me about an hour. I sang carols and had conversations with myself. Got totally sweaty, then took a nice shower. I felt quite accomplished.
This is not to say I had fun.
And it looks like I might soon have to do it all over again. We're supposed to have another "big storm system" moving in. Woo.
