It may have stopped snowing during the night, but this morning it started up again.
By the time I went out to the barn, we had three more inches.
I shoveled a path and did a little work on the paddock before Gary got out there to help me with chores.
The branches of all the fir trees were very heavy with snow.
We had over 12 inches yesterday.
After I grained the horses and put the hay out (much of it under the shed roof) it looked like this!!!!
It was coming down fast.
At least the temperature was around 32 degrees.
While I finished up in the barn...Gary continued to work on the driveway.
Eventually he said "enough is enough" and left the rest for plowing.
By mid afternoon, we had a call from Darrin and Trina, who were out snow blowing half of the world. They stopped by and cleaned up the rest of the driveway. Very good samaritans and have always been extremely generous when it comes to working around Skoog Farm. We cancelled the plow.
Louise and Jack stopped up around three with a bag of cookies from Greg'rys. It was tea time!
A nice treat and great conversation. We covered many topics!
When they left, I went out to do chores. It was still snowing....we approached 2 feet by 6 tonight.
The pups had a good run.
It was pitch black by the time we headed back to the house.
Above, you can get a sense of how much snow we have. This is the driveway that goes from the barn back toward the house.
Dinner???? No way...this was junk food night!
I stopped at Aldi's for a bag of chips....
and then drove over to Subway with my coupon, buy one get one free.
Fortunately the flowers on our kitchen table are still going strong. It's as close as we've been to sunshine in days.
