Snow Day!

Snowpocalypse 2011?  Well, not as big a snow as the time I was snowed in at work when I was a telephone operator, back in the olden days.

But," tis enough, 'twill serve."  Obviously with a 4 ft drift in front of the garage, I was going no where.  Luckily, Russ thought a snow day sounded like a good idea.  And before I was due at the library, that was closed for the day as well.
 As you can see in the first picture, there was a small gap between the highest part of the drift and the garage door.  Hubby shoveled a opening in the drift and then dug out the door so I could do bunny chores and get some meat for supper.  I also got a frozen pie to bake to help warm up the kitchen.  With our drafty old farm house, and a back door that blew part way open during the night for a couple hours, we had 60 degrees in the house last night.  Baking a pie, together with a shut door and shift in the wind helped warm us up before long.
 Here is a view of the inside edge of the drift, taken from inside the garage.
 Hubby was waiting for the wind to die down before trying to start the tractor.  But first we had a visitor.  As I said on FaceBook, its good to have a son with a Big tractor.  He had taken the tractor home and at 4am, plowed his way to the street and on down the road.  He went from farm to farm, plowing all of his boss's associated farms, one by one.  Luckily we were on the way to his next farm, after plowing out a friend next door. 
So much for the big drift.
Blizzard?  What blizzard?
