Buried in Maine
I anticipated 3-6 inches more snow overnight. You can imagine how surprised I was when I woke up to this:
The view out the kitchen window this morning.
The end of the day snow total is 28 inches, two storms back to back, this is more snow than we had all last winter. We spent the better part of five hours shoveling out the cars, chickens, ducks, driveway, wood boiler, plow truck that got stuck, etc. The chickens had no interest what-so-ever in coming out to play. The ducks on the other hand, were quite happy when Hannah rescued them from a house all but buried in the snow. Dare I say we’ve had enough for the time being?

What happened to “3 to 6 inches?”

My car is in there somewhere….

The ducky den Hannah dug out for them.
Thank goodness for the tractor!
Even with snowshoes Hannah’s sinking hip deep on her way to check the chickens.
