    Anyone else do this?
    I suppose this doesn't qualify for the Winter Challenge since there wasn't much distance involved. :(
    Not enough snow to use the snowblower, so I spent about 40 minutes shoveling my driveway and front patio yesterday while barefoot. The Weather Channel screenshot shows the weather conditions at the time. :coldfeet: My feet actually were fine - I wasn't at all uncomfortable the entire time.
    I should add that during this time, our mailman (who knows I'm a barefooter) came by and was quite amazed and entertained. :D
    This was actually the second day in a row I had to do this, although the day before was about 5 degrees warmer.

    You have no idea! :D Actually I've been walking and running barefoot around the neighborhood for a long time, and I do all my yard work barefoot, so they're kind of used to it by now.

    Another day of barefoot snow removal today - this time there was enough to use the snownblower. 25F and not much wind, so I went for it. Got the whole driveway clear before my feet started to feel cold. I have worn sandals before for snowblowing, but I think this was the first time I used the snowblower barefoot.
    Unfortunately no pictures to share this time.

    Nutzo doesn't even describe it!

    No pictures, but also no neighbors. I love being out in the snow barefoot! My kids think I am crazy, but up here in northern VT, we have snow on the ground about 5 months a year.
