With over three feet of snow on the ground, we’ve got plenty, thanks! Here’s my husband, Tim, on top of one of the mountainous snow piles in our yard. Holly and Otto, the German shepherds, are always ready to play. Since this photo was taken, the pile has gotten higher. I topped it off yesterday with the snow that came off the lower roof of the house. Here’s what the front of the house looked like before I cleared the debris.
Our new tractor with the bucket loader is earning its keep, for sure. I would have left this snow piled up to the windows except another monster storm is forecast for Wednesday. A nor-easter with up to 2 feet more white stuff is bearing down on us. Oh, joy. Not sure where I’ll put any new snow. Running out of room. Luckily, the forecast after Wednesday is for temps in the high 30s and into the 40s for the foreseeable future. Finally, maple syrup season will arrive! It’s about a month late this year. The weather is mostly sunny, but too cold for sap to run.
Here are some of the eleven wild turkeys that have been visiting the area beneath the bird feeders on a regular basis. Poor things must be very hungry. Spring, please hurry!
