Trying to decide if this is from Dr. Zhivago, or Tolstoy's Master and Man??

I've had about six inches of snow on the boat, and was able to see a marked increase in the amount line stretch on my windward dock lines...Something to keep in mind if you aren't too keen on smacking the pier

We plowed from 9 til noon and from about 2:30 til 5 and still have about 30 yards to get to the street. I share a driveway with our neighbors and we cleared about 100 yards total. We had to dig the truck out numerous times since the snow was so deep it couldn't pile off to the side but would just crest up into a mountain until the blow got hung up and we'd have to dig out.

I just run a line from the mast to the bow , run one port to starboard mid way ..throw a tarp over it and fit it with bungee cords .. one over the boom and fit it again ! just stand under the tarp and let your back push most of the snow ,ice off .
The shoveling takes about ten minutes with a six inch wide plastic shovel >
