This picture was taken last night on my return from the barn – it hadn’t started really blowing yet.
Of course this morning the snow had drifted in front of the gate again so it was back to the tractor and loader. If this keeps up, I’ll get lots better at moving snow by next winter.
The walk through gate is another story. The drift was over the fence inside the walk through gate when we got 17″ last week. No problem, I thought, I’ll just let it melt. Right? By now some of it has melted and become hard as concrete. Then we get yesterday’s snow on top of that.
Ok – it now opens into the yard but look what’s on the other side.
ThIs drift is solid ice with new snow on top – grrrrr!
Please don’t visit me without a phone call first so I can open the big gate but not let the dogs out. No problem, right? Except that I placed an Amazon order for pet food and kitty litter and I’ll just have to stay home and watch for UPS or FED EX.
That means today I need to run all my errands – chicken feed, diesel fuel, prescriptions.
Will post later to answer some rug questions and tell you a cat story.
