Jen shoveled without pause.
Thanks go to Delores at Under the Porch Light for providing six challenging words each Wednesday as a challenge. The bold underlined words above show her wide scope when it comes to words. You should check out her A to Z Challenge where each day, Delores would provide an extremely obscure word.
