Yesterday we got over 27″ of snow. It was the biggest single snow event we have had here since building our place 22 years ago. I spent 8 hours on the skid steer over the last two days digging us out! I am hoping like a good bag of chips…some settling occurs! I may have to get real creative to find a place to shove more if it comes too soon.

I snapped this picture of my two mares on Saturday evening before the snow came. What a difference a couple of days makes! The photo tickled me, as they are walking just as if they were hitched in the team. Good girls, who make me very happy.

I pushed snow everywhere even into a pile on the feedlot. I put as much as I could over the fence, but this pile will have to wait a day or so before I can move it. The horses don’t mind it and it is out of my way for now.

Abby coming to meet me. It is things like this that makes for a warm heart. She likes to be talked to and petted. It’s good for me too.

Work will continue soon, but right now the fields, woods and everything else lies under two feet of snow. It is beautiful. It is cold. It is winter in northeast Ohio…talk about chillin!



Here it is

Yep, they said it was coming…it’s here! Over four inches in the last couple of hours. They say the storm will hang around a while, so ready or not, here it is.

The animals are fed. The chores are done, but I still bet that I forgot something! I guess the next thaw will show the hoses, tubs or even my rain gage, that I forgot to empty. 😮
