6 inches or more! The snow that started late Sunday night continued all day Monday… until about dark. This is slowing the pace of activities in the area. Schools are having their first ‘snow day’ of the year. County roads are snow-packed and hard to get through. Over where John and Ashley live, the road has not been plowed, and it’s deep… rubs the belly of the pickup as you make your way along the road.
The clean-out can begin in earnest today.
Brandon has the blade on the back of the JD 7130, and did a little scraping with it yesterday. What is done with it today will ‘stay cleared’. I’m not a very good help yet because I have the use of only my right arm. Have you ever seen a one-armed snow shoveler? It’s pretty slow!
Here are some pictures taken yesterday evening and today around home and the farm. Looks pretty nice.
The only thing about snow that I don’t like is the time that will come later… when it melts and there is mud everywhere. But today, we’ll enjoy the beautiful white blanket. So pure, so calm, and so quiet… especially at dusk.
So, if you’re having a snow day, enjoy… make the best of it! To quote a popular song…. “do you wanna build a snowman?”
