Clearing a heavy snow off my car. Not because I needed to go anywhere right away- just to get most of it off and let the sun melt the rest. During my years in Carbondale it was rare for me to use my car more than for my Saturday grocery shopping. I lived across the street from my studio building, about 2 blocks from the campus, and a block from the Strip, which included convenience stores, art supplies, bars, and a dozen or so places to get a variety of take-out food. Snow would not stop me from getting to any of these places.
