The Weather Outside is Frightful

We got snow and lots of it! It has been 12 years since I have had this much snow at my house. I do love the snow and enjoyed watching it fall yesterday. If not for the fact that I have to get out of here in a couple days to pick hubby up at the airport, I would be completely over the moon about it. My driveway is almost half mile long and all uphill. Also I live way out in the country without a dairy farm on my road so we usually don't get scraped at all. Mostly just some large machinery is run over our road and the snow is packed down. Here is how my driveway looks right now and, though you really can't tell, it is 17 inches deep.

The driveway will have to be scraped before I can get to the main road and even then may not be able to go anywhere if the state doesn't do something to it.

Here is my rock bench,

Anns' house,

and she is not having any part of this stuff!

She has been on her fleece on the carport all night and is very concerned that she won't be able to find all of the meaty bones she has buried everywhere.

I watched her this morning and had to laugh. She walked about 3 feet from the carport, dragging herself through, as the snow is higher than her belly and she is a heavy dog. She peed, turned and came right back on the carport where she has remained since. This is her first big snow and I am enjoying it for her much more than she is.

Anyway, me and the John Deere tractor are not such good friends. I am actually pretty scared of it because it is awfully big. The scraper blade is on it and it has been under the shed and just needs to have the heater plugged in for a bit to get started. I'll have to try, I guess.

Stay tuned.
