I was going to try to get a picture up of the snow and ice that fell here over the past few days. Several inches overall. It pulled down powerlines all over the place. Luckilly we were only without power for about five or six hours or so, so not too bad, particularly compared with the wind storm we had back in September when we were without power for five days. The good news is that we are getting ready later in the year to make the leap to off the grid living via solar power and solar generators. More on that later.
We didn't sustain much damage up here on the farm, I did have to stay awake on the night of the storm and repeatedly remove the ice and snow from the two large greenhouses with a push broom along with the chicken coop.
Unfortunately our neighbor didn't fare so well. Two of his large chicken coops fell under the weight of the snow and ice, He lost about 50,000 chickens. Though I don't like the idea of corporate farming of this type, I feel deeply for him and his family and their loss.
Have I mentioned that I deeply dislike winter? I think I have SAD, seasonal affective disorder, I just can't deal with being cooped up at all. I'm sure Kim is getting tired of me asking her if it is spring yet.
