The snow started falling on Saturday, December 15th when we got 3 inches. Sunday it snowed like crazy; at the end of the day we had 7 inches. Monday or Tuesday (I don’t recall which) we added a fresh 1.5 inches. Then Wednesday – what a day – after snowing all morning, raining around lunch time, and then snowing all afternoon into early evening we had 17 inches. That’s 2 inches taller than my winter muck boots.
A week later and it’s finally starting to melt. This morning is the first time I’ve seen mud in the pasture and I see that a significant amount has melted off the patio table. It’s going to be a mess as it melts away, but I still want it gone.
Zi makes the most of it:
I call this one, “where’s the hose again?”. The snow must be 3 feet deep here where it has slid off the barn roof. I’ll be lucky to unearth this hose by the end of January.
Not sure how I managed to not get mowed down in this one!
Nevermind, I don’t need to walk through this doorway anyway. Must remember this for the next barn we build – put a dormer over every doorway to direct the snow AWAY.
Thank goodness for heated water troughs!
I had a good time with this series. Blondie had an itch and wanted to roll. Zi’s blasting around in the background, just waiting for her moment to go after Blondie.
Finally starting to melt, but still about 12 inches deep in this photo.
