What a mess. Trees down everywhere. Power out everywhere. Mandatory ban on water usage (water pumping stations have no power).

The first picture is my husband shoveling when there was still only 18 inches on the ground (note the tree branch that had just come crashing down on our front steps). The second picture is after the snow stopped and the sun came out. It's a pain, but it's beautiful.

Started w/CFWUx2 and ended up with severe back pain in the middle of 2nd round of sit-ups. Stopped.

Ran 5k on the road in the hills of Lampasas in 31:10
My back held out fine. My left calf tightened up with about 400m to the finish, but I kept going.

I'm told that somewhere in their 20's you get cool again.

NICE SNOW!! You can have fun doing the real "un-virutal" shoveling WOD.......Pat, thanks for the explanation......My old brain is on strike or something........Someone else also explained it in a different part of the forum which I ran across by accident - - tuck progressions for skin the cats, etc. also.....
