Photo post! Get to know your blogger friends!

So, I was tagged by the lovely Stars & Robots to do this photo post.
The idea is to:
1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo on your blog and tell the story behind it.
4. Tag people to do the same.

Can I just say that I love this photo? This is the back of my apartment building, and that is my back door. I took it last winter. We had a major snow storm, with a lot of wind. The way my apartment is situated in the u-shape building, the snow always drifts terribly at my front and back doors. One year, I started shovelling from shoulder level from inside my living room. This picture is taken after the plow came in and cleared the driveway, but all of that digging on that little gerbil trail is courtesy of yours truly! I can be an industrious psycho, huh? This was one of those storms where you get a ton of snow, the wind blows it around, and then it ends with freezing rain, which left an inch and a half of ice on top of the snow that I got to pound through before I could start shovelling. Man, that junk was heavy, too. I also shovelled out my car and my neighbor's car, because she was pregnant at the time. And the only part of me that was sore the next day was my poor hands, from using my old yard sale shovel to beat through the ice. Ah, winter, please don't do this to me again this year, okay? Thanks Stars & Robots. Do you get this in Birmingham? :)

So now, I get to tag people to play this game!
