What a morning. High winds from the Northeast, horizontal snow....and a lot more on the way.
WINTER STORM ADVISORY! (Again).
I put the ponies out for 20 minutes while I cleaned their stalls and they were ready to go back in.
I'll put them out again before evening chores so they can stretch their legs. It's supposed to let up this afternoon. Here's hoping we don't get 10 more inches.
The fire is going and I'm not leaving the area....more later.
It's now after 2pm and the snow has been piling up for hours. After this, I need to go out and check on the horses.
L'orange Marmalade has spent the afternoon lounging.
Sidney and Phoebe teamed up....
I went out around 3pm and had to shovel may way to the barn. The snow was 12-16 inches deep and even worse where it drifted. The wind was so strong it blew open the back door (it's a good thing there was a chain on it or it would have been even worse) in the horse barn and there was snow all over the place...right where we store the sawdust. Outside of Mustafa's stall (he has a space about 16 x 32 to wander in) there was more snow. A plexiglass window got blown out. First I let the horses out and gave them some hay...then I started shoveling out the mess.
Not in a dinner making mood, so we went down to Barber's for a Balboa.
Home by 8:45. Out of gas.
