Thread: Samui Samu!!

    Samui Samu!!

    Here in New Brunswick (yesterday) we had nearly 2 feet of snow drop in 12 hours. I spent my "snow day" - work was canceled - working 2x as hard shoveling the driveway (our gent that plows for us had his truck show its impermance :B).

    Now we do not have a castle on top of a hill with 3 miles of drive to clear but none the less its a daunting task. I used that 3 hours of shoveling like a samu period, worked away at it with out thinking "UUUUGG this is going to take for ever" etc. Half a shovel load at a time, since i knew i had all day or longer to complete. I just took it easy. 2 hands on the shovel (hehe doesn't work well otherwise) and i actually enjoyed it. Despite the howling winds and constant snow in the face... i noted this when i was all done... i was frosty the zen-man?

    Anywho no point to that i guess, just saying "hey thats cool" :B

    Samui* Samu!!

    Here is a couple of pics of our place around 7am yesterday (the snow was starting to subside then) oh and one from sunday for reference sake... i had just put up the "X"mas lights and took the shot so i could show my wife what they looked like (it was too cold for her to go look- funny thing was it wasn't too cold for ME to put them up LOL -20C [ -4 F])

    before the storm:

    and after:


    *Sumui = cold tks to J for that tidbit

    Shoveling is good exercise, and sounds like it can be good practice too!

    Thanks for the reminder.

    We've had snow in NJ now a couple times already this year, enough to shovel. We had an ice storm too. Think it's gonna be a hairy winter.

    You might appreciate Billy Collins's poem "Shoveling Snow with Buddha." You can read it at

    Snow buddhas hehe! theyd look cool all lit up by those chri -er... Rohatsu lights (um yeah... totally representative of Buddha's Enlightenment)

    Thanks for sharing that poem Ben! im going to share that with a few friends of mine.

    This year (as it is every year) is being touted to be a tough winter. I think our news casting friends like to keep us freaked out a bit
