Yesterday's Blizzard

After nearly two months of melting and shoveling, the 5' x 50' snow drift was finally down to bare (mud). Following last night's blizzard, we're back to square one.

This morning, the 8' tall barn doors were completely blocked by 8' high snow drifts. All east facing doors are also blocked by floor-to-ceiling drifts, piled on the inside AND the outside of each door. Everyone was trapped inside their barns and it took us hours of shoveling just to be able to open the doors, as the inside of the barns was full of snow too.

By noon, the birds barn, the big pig yard, and the potbelly pig barn were still inaccessible. It took us till late afternoon to dig them all out.
