32.9 INCHES OF SNOW AND CLIMBING~

Throughout the night the wind blew and the snow fell...
it continues to do so...
our town has accumulated 32.9 inches of snow...a very impressive amount... records will be broken... 
Mr. Dog Trot has been  plowing before dawn...it takes a bit of time to plow our long winding driveway and then there are numerous relatives he must attend to...
time to brave the elements and make my way to the coop...
sorry Sadie...backdoor use only...more photos as the day progresses...stay safe...

Julie that is a shocker. The coop doesn't even look like itself! We been thinking about you, especially when we see you up there on The Weather Channel news! Just take care and I am hoping and praying you keep your power. I am pretty sure you once said you had a generator! And we thought our 22 inched a couple of years ago was something!

Oh that picture of the cat facing the doorway of snow is hilarious, it's like he doesn't know what to do..or he can't figure it out LOL

Mary@BarnBugStudio said...

Wow! Here on Maryland's eastern shore, we just had big wind and rain. I would have happily taken some of that snow off your hands. We've had several dustings, but no significant snows this year, so far. Hope you are staying warm and cozy. By the time all that snow melts, there will hopefully be signs of spring.

Glad that you still have power. How does Mr. Winslow Homer like the snow? I'm sure you must shovel a path for him!
Stay safe and warm.
Hugs :)

nancy huggins said...

Wow.If I was still in my teens I would think it was cool but even though it might look pretty it is a lot of work..lucky that you still have power..loosing power is worse than a lot of snow...Think about what it will look like in May..Thats what I keep telling myself to do:0

Leisa said...

Wow, stay safe and warm in that crazy weather! As inconvenient as they are, I so miss snow days.. Hugs from Miami :-)
