Drifts

I apologize for not posting anything is several days.  Things have been a little busy here.  Julie is sick with a sore throat and head cold.  We took her to the doctor yesterday.  Thankfully it is not strep throat.  But she feels yucky just the same.  Rest and lots of liquids for her.  Also we have been doctoring Jasper’s (young dog) paw.  He seems to have stepped on somthing and run it through his paw in 3 different places.   The first day it happened he just limped, the second day it was swollen 3 times normal size, the third day it bled alot, then finally it has started ( I hope) to improve.  The swelling is down, he still can’t put any weight on it, but it looks much better.  Of course, he has been allowed to sleep on the enclosed porch, which I am thinking he likes WAY too much.  Cold temperatures here-below zero wind chills.  Wind gusts of about 60 mph.  We had to let the fire go out in the wood stove.  It was just too much smoke coming in the house, especially with Julie sick.  This is definitely on Hubby’s to-do list to fix this problem this summer.  100_2915

The pictures are of drifts in our side yard.  They are a little darker than I had hoped but you can get the idea anyway.  I estimate them to be over 4 ft.  Yesterday when we took Julie to the doctor,  the main road was pretty bad.  3-4 ft. drifts blocking one side of the road.  Lots of places had only 1 lane open.  When we came back, the road crews had cleared them.  Our road crews have definitely spent a lot of time working this winter.  Speaking of work, I guess I better get busy.  Take care and God bless.

More Snow Pictures

I wanted to get some pictures showing how deep the drifts had gotten.  Unfortunately by the time we went back down to the barn it was almost too dark to get really good pictures.  This picture shows going down to the milk barn.

This is the side of the road at the milk barn.

This picture is coming up from the milk barn.

These pictures do not show it as well as I wanted them to.  There was not enough light.  Anyway you can get an idea of how it looks.  The road crews have not even thought about our road yet.  Fortunately for us, Marvin clears this part of the road with his tractor so he can get up to his cows.  If not, there would be no path cleared.  The wind, praise God, has slowed down.  Temperatures were in the lower 20’s.  The weather man says to expect below normal temperatures for the next 10 day, so I guess none of this will be melting any time soon.  Chance of more snow coming in on Monday.  At least we can get the truck down to the barn now.  No bible study tomorrow.  No one could get here.  I guess I better get busy, getting things done.  God Bless.
