    Wanted to wish everyone well in New York and New England states that will be affected by the snow storm. I'm praying you and your animals remain safe and warm. Keep us posted.

    Thanks, we really need the prayers. Wind's starting to whip up out there. All the domestic critters at our place, two-leggeds and four-leggeds are indoors now.

    The bottom line of asterisks represent the five inches of snow we have at this point.

    My blessings this morning to those digging out from the storm and who may have lost power. May your troubles be few.

    All dug out here. My Khakis seem a little chagrined this morning. I do hope they will forgive me!

    Hope all weathered the storm ok! In my parts we got hit hard with snow, must have more than 10inches, it just kept coming last night BUT no lose of power and no damage. Will likely have to dig out again today and it's cold... -13C with windchill in the -20's brrr but sunny! hard to say if the ducks will venture out today, yesterday they did not! and of coarse the chickens run is buried so they are going nowhere lol

    What a white, windy mess! We've got 16" in our lowest spots. My husband's been working on and off since 3:30AM and has barely made a dent. We have a driveway and a road to plow before we even get to the main road, and he's only gotten halfway through the driveway... [​IMG] He DID, though, make sure to shovel off the roof of the duck house first thing, before he started on the driveway. My hero! [​IMG] I keep peeking out toward the duck house (gotta love binoculars!), but I'm not seeing much activity. Everyone's in the duck house, which is REALLY weird, especially for the Muscovies. *chuckle* We're going to have to shovel paths for them to be able to get to food and water, when we get out there. Speaking of which... *sigh* ... Here I go... [​IMG]

    Thinking of everyone and sending warm, safe thoughts.

    Hey Going Quakers! Nice to see you here! Yep, same here. Hubby went to work yesterday, so I had to plow with ATV w/blade for first time. Lol, that was fun! Did a good enough job for him to get in anyway. I haven't seen this much snow since I lived in Winnipeg or Montreal!
