Majestic Diary

January 12, 2011

After surviving two snow storms Saturday and Sunday (each dropping 6 inches on us), we got hit HARD by today’s blizzard. We went to bed last night and set the alarm to go off every hour. At 4 a.m. this morning it was time to go out and start clearing the aviary nets and shoveling paths to give the ducks and geese mobility in their pens.

The snow was REALLY heavy—like shoveling bricks… in the DARK! We came in for a 2 hour rest at 8 a.m. and then went back out again. We worked so hard I nearly lost my stomach and had to come in and rest from exhaustion. Snow was still pounding down. We went back out and shoveled more… and then more… and then started crying… Finally, the storm began to wane off.

We gave up shoveling at 4 p.m. When every duck and goose could get safely from shelter to water buckets and food dishes and every gate and door could swing open and closed.

There is still over 2 feet of snow left on the quarantine pen and on Louisville that has to be removed, but we don’t have the strength to do it. We know Louisville can handle it, but I know the quarantine pen can't and might be doomed (there are NO ducks in there).
