The Aftermath

Well, a state of emergency has been declared. The wind blows the snow across the roads almost as fast as they're plowed. So no one is allowed to drive on any county owned or maintained roads until further notice, so there. Thankfully, we're well stocked on toilet paper and our power is still on so we don't need to go anywhere.

Yesterday the white outs were so bad, we couldn't see the railing on our deck. Today there's a bright blue sky with fluffy clouds. Nice change.

Our road is almost always plowed pretty quickly. It looks like a plow has been down the road at some point, but it's still not exactly passable..well, unless you have a snowmobile or skis.
The pictures don't do it justice. Bill was going to walk to the neighbor's, but the drifts were 6 feet tall in places with none smaller than 3 feet.

You can't really tell in this picture, but there are spots in the field where the grass is showing. But then most of our 4 ft fence is almost completely buried. Lots of wind out here.

Hopefully the next storm will hold off long enough for us to get plowed out so we can restock (and make contact with real live people before I go crazy). It has been pretty cool to experience recordbreaking snow, but I'll be very happy when the warmer weather arrives.
