This (rotten, broken snow scraper from my car) is just one of the MANY!!! reasons why smart girls choose to de-ice their freezers in the summer instead of putting it off until November. Observe the damage done in battle...freezer battle.
Never mind, me (hopefully a smart girl in the making) and my gimpy scraper hacked and sawed and scoured the shelves until they were clear...well, mostly clear....well, kind a clear...well, anyway, until we were tired and sick of stupid, fat, ice so we called it good enough.
Actual smart girls also realize that a large pile of snow hanging out in your shed when the temperatures are freezing outside is harder to handle than when temps are nice and toasty out. Enter my handy child-sized snow shovel and trusty (if bent from when I ran over it with the car earlier in the summer) broom. That mostly worked out ok.
But, most of all, smart girls know that a pile of snow in the yard, whether winter or summer, is loads of fun for a crew of kidlets. Maybe I'm on my way to smartness after all.
And TA DA! Much cleaner version of the DeMoux family freezer (and a preview of some of our Thanksgiving goodies...yummmm!).
