Surviving the snow storm

I am so thankful Clarence was able to figure out what was wrong with his tractor recently and get it running again.

Although 8-12 inches of snow was predicted for our area, we seem to have ended up on the low end of the prediction. Whew!

Clarence started plowing last night after work. The tractor has lights but, as it grew dark, his tires were starting to spin on the ice that is under the snow. He decided to finish today, when he could put chains on the tires in the daylight.

Julianne was sweet and bundled up to take all these pictures for me. She knows my aversion to snow and cold. Plus, she likes being allowed to use my camera.

Clarence is still plowing now, trying to get the snow pushed as far out of the way as possible. We're supposed to get more tonight. And almost every day next week. The news said that we could have a whole year's worth of snow by Christmas. Be still my heart.

  1. Does that mean we will be done with the blasted stuff after Christmas!? Maybe spring will come in February since wqinter came so early. I did get a snow day friday, but that is where my excitement for all this snow ends:>P


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
