Any time this much snow falls, there’s the danger of roof collapses. Yes, we suffered a roof collapse.
The chicken run didn’t hold up so well under the weight of the snow. It’s ok . . it’s just PVC pipe and once the snow is brushed off and the pipes repositioned, they’ll never know their run was almost destroyed. You might notice there are no footprints in the snow leading to the chickens. Vince checked on them yesterday afternoon and gave them plenty of water and food and their heater is going so I didn’t go out there today. The snow is over my knees and my boots don’t even come up to my knees so as long as I know they have food and water, I’m not worried about them. Vince will check on them when he gets home this evening.
Bless his heart! Vince worked for several hours this morning trying to dig out so he could go to work and this is how far he got. Not quite enough to get any of our vehicles out but he tried. His friend with a Toyota Tundra pickup came and got him and took him to work. The streets are fine . . but our driveway was impossible.
You can bet I was glad to see this dude show up with his shiny red tractor (or whatever this thing is called). For $40, he cleaned my driveway so we can get all the cars out . . not that the wimpy S10 is going anywhere with the road conditions and you can bet the Highlander isn’t going anywhere under these conditions.
He was so nice! He even made me a dog bathroom! Speck can go out and do his “bizness” and he doesn’t have to rub his belly in the snow and he’s shielded from the wind. Too bad those snow walls aren’t tall enough to block the wind from me when we’re out there!
I don’t think we’ll be grilling any time soon! If anyone wants my opinion . . we’ve had enough snow! Spring can come early . . tomorrow would be fine! I heard that Phil did not see his shadow today which means we will have an early spring. I’m so happy . . maybe I will be nicer to all the groundhogs this year!
