So far just a dusting...
could it just stay that way??? We went out and
topped off everyone's food dishes and changed out
their water buckets. Now we wait... and pray it
won't be as bad and we won't get as much snow as
they've been predicting. If we stop answering emails
and posts, it means we've lost power/internet. If
you have a duck or goose emergency and you're one of
our dear friends, please call us on our home phone.
If we don't answer, we're just out in the barn, but
we'll be back eventually!
We just removed the first
two inches of snow from the nets, fencing, houses,
gates, etc. How many more times do we need to go out
there before this stops?! It is a very wet and heavy
snow... the worst kind. Very sticky...
Okay... they say that the
worst part is now upon us and will continue for the next
couple of hours. We'll be heading out every 30
minutes because we're expecting 3 inches an hour
Holy smokes... we were
just out there for an hour and about 6 inches fell
while we were there. We came in for a quick break to
toss our coats into the dryer. Rotating shifts going
forward. Tony and I will each take 30 minutes out
and 30 minutes in. Isabel goes with me to hold the
flashlight (she thinks this is fun!!! WHAT?!
Kids...). About to juice a veggie energy drink to
get me through the next trip out. Only 7 more hours
of really bad snow, eh? Lord help me...
We're officially half way
through "the worst part" ... Another foot of snow to
come, they say. We have two feet now.
We spent an hour and a
half cleaning off the roof of Louisville and the
quarantine pen. Plus shoveling and clearing the elec
fence again. Every muscle that isn't frozen is
cramped or aching. THE PAIN...
