Volunteer Snow Removal

This morning after breakfast (nearly free after winning $16 off a free-play coupon from the Wigwam Restaurant/Casino), I walked around downtown Fernley as I often do. The Fernley Christmas Parade was scheduled for this evening at 5 PM (after dark this year so people could actually see the lights on all of the floats).

While I was out walking, I decided that I'd had enough of a couple of downtown hazards and decided to do something about them.

After my short stint with free-lance sidewalk clearing, I went home (the exercise did me good) and dealt with a bit more snow clearance on our own property.

I spent most of the rest of the day at the computer working on a project with a new piece of hardware and trying to convince it that it really does want to work with the USB 3 port on my computer. Fernley's parades form up on the street in front of our house, so when the parade started appearing, I walked back downtown to watch it. But that's a story for another entry.
