    OT - Where are you EtLux?

    I know we all have things that come up and spend periods of time away from the forum. I've been in such a time myself and find myself just getting back into the swing of posting and replying. I have been perusing various threads and have noticed the conspicuous absence of our good friend EtLux, especially in the Listening Room. I hope he's ok and not buried in 12 feet of snow.

    I hope he's undistractedly working away on some piece!

    You've hit it, Steve, of course: It's the snow.

    My driveway is so long it is, truly, one of the few human
    artifacts that can be seen from outer space.

    And, of course, being a hearty New Englander -- I refuse
    all modern conveniences and shovel it by hand.

    Well. This year has proven a challenge. I just get it all
    shoveled, and find myself having to start all over again,
    back in the other direction.

    I have now traversed the mighty length of it a total of
    seventeen times -- non-stop, mind you, as taking breaks
    is a dire effrontery to the Yankee work ethic.

    I do apologize for not being around the forum more; but,
    alas, the ravages of age: at 58, I seem to be slowing
    down somewhat. Worse, having shot out both rotator
    cuffs, I'm now forced to use only one shovel at a time,
    rather than my former two.

    And then there's my neighbor. I suspect he may not be
    a true New Englander. The other day, I was shoveling
    away happily and happened to get a little dusting of
    snow on his car in the process (maybe six feet of it or
    so) -- and, my heavens, the fuss he raised! More time
    wasted, as I went over and brushed it off for him.

    The town's gotten all weak-kneed and wimpy, too.
    Used to be, they didn't mind a bit that fifty-foot-high
    pile of snow I'd so carefully shovel into the middle
    of the road -- so they could get at it easily, you see.

    Now? They've got some silly ordinance that says
    I can't do that anymore... which, of course, meant that
    I had to shovel it back on my driveway.

    What can I say. As you can see, this is decidedly
    impinging upon the time I can spend in the forum.

    But I'll be back... soon as I get done shoveling.

    All the best,



    David

    Hi David,

    Whether it's with your music or that short story you just spun , you never cease to entertain us! It was good just to hear from you again.

    Us Mid-Atlantic wimps (just North of NYC) only had to remove a foot this time ... I was able to easily do that from within my music studio with just my wife's hairdryer tied to a series of broomsticks.

    Regards,

    Frank

    Consuming energy, what a waste. It cost a lot more CO2 and more CO2 means more snow, which means more hairdryers on broomsticks, which means more CO2........... In the near future there won't be enough hairdryers to do this job........ And does your wife know this "apparatus abuse"?

    My heavens! I'd never considered all the ramifications like this...

    Worse, even hand-shoveling... I always bulk up with a nice pot
    of baked beans before I shovel -- which I shall no doubt have to
    discontinue; lest the methane destroy our climate.

    For the sake of the planet, man!

    Here Down Under we don't have any snow so, not wanting to let those New Englanders get the better of us, we shovel other things.

    Doesn't smell so good.

    Gday Allan,

    You said:

    “Here Down Under we don't have any snow …”

    I remember some rare occasions, when snowflakes fell on Sydney. Getting away from the cost in winter provides lots of opportunities to enjoy the snow Down Under. The Snowy Mountains area is vast, with plenty of snow each winter and first class facilities for anyone who can afford it.

    We had lots of good times there.

    Well I'm certainly glad you're doing well. Maybe we should call you Edward Shovelhands.

    I'm also glad composing doesn't require extensive use of your rotator cuffs. Or does it?
