I can't even calculate how much snow we got, but I'll say that I waded through waist-deep snow to get to the horses (the BO didn't have her driveway cleared for 48 hours, which was FUN).
Since we had a "snow day" yesterday (I actually cannot remember the last time we had a snow day, wherein schools and businesses were closed) the SO and I got to it and tried to cross as many chores off our list as we could.
Over the weekend I smartly moved the horses's water trough under cover, as the threat of even more snow made me nervous. It was a daunting task, excavating a trough from packed down snow, but I got it done and managed to get everything set up just in time for the storm to roll through.
Yesterday was a busy day - snowblowing driveways, shoveling, clearing vehicles, and clearing the horse's lean to roof (as the pitch of the roof is not as steep as the rest of the barn roofs, so it needed a bit of help, as the threat of rain is coming later this week).
Since every bone in my body hurts, I'll leave you with photos of the chaos and once again, will announce that Spud would like to move to California please and thank you (I also would like to go with him).
|The lean to roof doesn't have the highest pitch, which makes snow accumulate at a higher|
rate than the other roofs on the barn.
|It took me 2 hours to get the bulk of the snow off. The remainder is laden with|
ice, so too difficult to scrape off.
|The snow was easily 4ft high, not including|
the ice layer I couldn't get to budge.
|They don't know how lucky they are.|
|You can see Annie's trail to the left, but you can no longer see|
my back pasture fences.
|I took the dogs for a walk around town lastnight, and it was|
|Some of the sidewalks had not been plowed yet.|
|There is a house back there somewhere.|
|My horse trailer is back there... somewhere.|
|Ghost vehicles who did not get cleared during the dump of snow.|
