18 Inches of Snow By Tonight
The calm before the storm. The neighbor's just down the road yesterday morning when Steve and I went out to start our errands before the storm hit. This is an organic farm, more like a compound that started with only one new house and now has a total of three new houses, several barns and multitudes of chickens and calves, horses, goats and dogs.
Here is the start of the snow storm yesterday afternoon at about 4pm shortly after we got home from our errands and I fed the girls. I shoveled about 8 inches of snow this morning when I went out to feed. And the reports are for another 8 inches by 6pm tonight. My shoveling efforts are futile with snowfall rates of 2-3 inches per hour. We are hunkered down today and the silly girls are too freaked out to stay in the shelter today inspite of my efforts to feed them in there this morning. Thank God for four wheel drive in a pick-up truck because I may want to get out later.
