A friend of mine said: “I’m so glad I have 3 teenage boys. Who else would watch me shovel?”
Gabriel Holm is not yet a teenager. So the Bedford 6th grader spent most of today helping clear his family’s driveway.
It took hours — but he worked very, very hard, and it’s done.
Great job, Gabriel. Now go play Mortal Kombat.
Meanwhile, when you’re young, you don’t have to work; you just play outside. Another “06880” reader sent along this photo, captioned “Kindergarten Student”:
One day years from now — in, say, 2055 — he’ll tell his kids about the winter of 2010-11, and how he made snow angels in drifts that were almost as tall as he was.
And they’ll roll their eyes, and go right back to the mid-21st-century version of Mortal Kombat.
