You do what you have to do, when you are sick. You postpone your skiing plans and stare wistfully out the window at your car disappearing rapidly under a growing coat of snow. Instead of the scheduled 18-miler outdoors, you crank out 12 mind-numbing miles on the dreaded 'mill. And if while you are recovering, you end up infecting the poor, unsuspecting husband, you do the decent thing and get out there to extricate his car as well as yours from underneath a pile of snow...
...a little help from a friendly snow plough operator is always welcome.
