*bittersweet reminder

I'd have said bittersweet. You can't help but want to shovel a little bit.

My most favorite time to shovel is at night when it's snowing so hard that the silence is deafening - at most you can hear the faint roar of a neighbor's engine as he tries to get his Buick up the hill next to your place. The kind of fast paced snowfall without enough wind to be threatening, but the kind that you can't shovel fast enough to see the path you just finished behind you.

That's my favorite time to shovel.
