It is another sunny day! Only now the ground is under a couple more feet of snow.
The wind was INTENSE as promised but overall it was far from Armageddon. Our power only flickered once and aside from Luna acting more homicidal than normal; all is well here on the homestead.
I can say that now because my amazing husband has freed the cars and reconnected us with the outside world.
The drifts are something else and while some places only got a few inches we have dunes that are almost four feet other spots on the property.
The chicken coops both made it with no damage and very little snow inside but plenty of chickens. Just the way it should be.
The guinea fowl/chicken flock passed the storm in the A frame coop.
The door was on the right side so the wind didn’t make a mondo-drift in front of it.
The back side was a different story.
Getting water to them this morning I had to go through drifts that were almost to my hips.
I did a time lapse of our front yard for an hour yesterday morning you can see it on the FB page. I am actually surprised we got as much snow as we did, the wind seemed determined to blow everything straight Canada. The back garden did catch a lot of it on its journey North.
Calling home everyone is too busy shoveling themselves out to chat, but all safe and sound. Take care.
Yep, that is pretty much the story over here. Back to the grind tomorrow. I am beginning to like snow days 🙂
