Snow, snow, and more snow!

What a beautiful day!  Even though our high today was 2 degrees, the sun was shining and we had no wind.

Most of the day was spent moving snow.  J runs the tractor and I run the shovel.  I did a lot of shovel work today.

It took a while to move snow so we could feed livestock this morning.  I was  the lucky candidate to let pairs out of individual pens and into the community area.  It made my morning to see the babies jump, buck, and play.

J was lucky and had no calves born last night.  This is what the barn looked like this morning.

 After moving snow this afternoon, the barn is now assessable.

Calving Barn ... Back to working order.

I had good help  from Roxie today.  I just wish she had arms to shovel with.


This is how Molly spent most of her day.

Pretty Girl did venture past the edge of the house.

After all that work I still had enough energy to mop my floors.  The entryway was looking pretty icky.

Tomorrow it is back to work in town.

How much snow did you get at your house?

    Went out after lunch to plug in the tractor for Jerry so he could move snow here when he got home. I stuck my hand down in the snow several times and it measured 12″. It was just a sea of white. Couldn’t believe all the snow this morning.
    See you tomorrow.

    We had 13″ of snow that melted to 1.53″ of liquid according to how NOAA states to do it.
    Funny how the loads of snow on the shovel got smaller as one shoveled more.
    County road looks cleared as far as what we can see from our house.

      I woke up ready and willing to shovel snow yesterday morning. By 3:00 I had had my fill! I still see more places to shovel, but they are not priority for the moment. We had Todd Fink come plow Peggy Creek yesterday. He did a wonderful job!

    The farm looks so pretty in all the snow. Although I can imagine how hard it is to manage.

    And our dog is named Roxy too. 🙂
