A Northeastern Ohio Blessing

I'm familiar with the Irish blessing:
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields.

And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
Right now, we're in the midst of another lovely Cleveland snowstorm. On the news this morning, they mentioned that the Cleveland record for snowfall in January is 43 inches. As of 9 o'clock this morning, we were at 39, and it's not done snowing yet.

While lifting the heavy shovel for about the 200th time, I came up with my own Cleveland blessing:
May the snow be light
May your shovel be wide
And may spring come tomorrow.
