Digging Out

Mother Nature dropped at least a foot of snow upon us yesterday.


Everywhere you look, it’s a Winter Wonderland.


Today it was time to dig out.


Hannah soon discovered that snow shoes were the easiest mode of transportation.


My Birch trees are sagging under the weight of the snow.


Hannah tramped down the snow in the chicken run and cleared the snow off the sagging run roof.

This was our first Maine Christmas without snow. This storm has more than made up for it!
