The weather persons have named this storm “Goliath”. We weren’t too concerned as they are often wrong. However, this time, it did start snowing yesterday at 9:30 a.m. and 36 hours later hasn’t quit. I had just finished my workout and decided to brave the blizzard to go to town for milk (without any makeup and in sweats!) I could think of nothing worse than being snowed in for days without milk. The horses are wishing they were somewhere in a stall with blankets on them . . . . or not?The storm delivered. It continues to snow as I write this at 6 p.m. December 27, 2015. So far, we have around 18 inches on the level. The problem however, is the drifts many are greater than 5 foot high. The entire sorting alley is snowed in to the top pipe!The real snow hero is my husband. He has piloted the blade or the bobcat ALL day. He has delivered feed to all the animals and cleared the roads and the pens. He has not stopped since early this morning. We have had some water problems. It started out as snow waiting down floats, and has progressed to pump house leaks and smoking pumps. He has just left again to recheck the red tank, he hopes be be back by 8:30 p.m. I guess this why he doesn’t want to move to Alaska, where much like today, I would do my part . . . bake and keep the fire going!
Awww, and I thought the chickens water bucket with ice on the top of the water was terrible! Yes, just keep on baking and throwing kidling and dadling on the fire!
I know right! I kept the fire going and there were cookies everywhere!
