Shoveling and rabbits

Branches are falling. The day-long rain began freezing, and now we've got snow.

My approach to cleanup in these conditions is to scrape off all the snow and water I can and salt the pavement, so that the remaining snow lands on salt water instead of freezing to the sidewalk. That makes it a lot easier to finish scraping off in the morning. The driveway was slippery underfoot already.

When I came back inside, I noticed that the very mild exertion left me with pneumonia-like symptoms. I've had it often enough to recognize them. That hour in the rabbit hall this morning must have seriously dusted up my lungs.
