Majestic Diary

February 9, 2013

12:00 a.m.

We shoveled until near midnight and then collapsed as it slowed down a tiny bit.

We checked the pens at 1:00 and 3:00 a.m. and there wasn't much accumulation, so we slept until 4:30 a.m. and the storm had come on full force again. Back outside...

6:30 a.m.

We just finished shoveling another foot of snow... so tired... time to crash for a bit again...

9:30 a.m.

We're just having breakfast. Still getting 1 inch an hour here... looks like it will keep up... until noon. Then we go out and start shoveling the pens and clearing the driveway. We're going to fire up the bullet to help melt the HUGE pile up of snow in all the pens. There's literally no room to move out there. I think we're at 3 feet of snow now. Just getting out to Louisville through 3-4 foot snow drifts takes everything we've got, but you know we did it for our dear feathered friends. Please keep the prayers and thoughts of warmth coming... we still have a full day of cleaning to do. I'll get photos when I go out.

2:30 p.m.

We put in 5 hours of shoveling and snow-blowing and FINALLY found everything--cars, duck houses, goose barn. I added a few fun trails for everyone to wander on and then blazed a trail to the grain shed and sand pile. The barn pump was frozen, but I was able to thaw it with a blow-dryer and get it running and everybody now has fresh food, fresh water and nice clean pens... if you look past all the huge mounds of snow anyway!
