Worse and Worse

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

What I should have done was plow during the day yesterday, between storms. The first layer of 5 or so inches was wet to start off with and then got even wetter with the rain and sleet.

But then, last night, heavy snow came in a dropped another foot on the wet layer beneath. Fortunately, the top layer was lighter snow, so it was easy to plow. But every time I dropped the loader all the way to the ground I ran into the icy, heavy snow layer beneath and the tractor simply could not push it. It was a long frustrating process to get the driveways open. Had I plowed the wet stuff earlier, it would have been a lot easier today.

Ah well, live and learn.

But I managed. Heaven knows where I will push the snow if we get another storm before the bulk of this one melts. It has gotten simply ridiculous out there. I figure I was clearing snow for over two hours.  The sun is warm, though and wherever I did manage to expose some of the driveway, it's melting fast. I'm going to need to go out at some point to get the diesel fuel for the tractor, but I'm just kind of resting up now. Even though I was driving the tractor, it's still a tiring process to dig out.

Just to give you a sense of snow depth, Chance was in the paddock by his stall when I went out to feed this morning, and the snow was over his knees. I may go out to take some pictures later so check back if you've already read the blog to see the results.


  1. Yikes. It's still hard core winter there. We're already seeing slight shades of spring. Good luck!

    Even more snow! It's the winter that never ends in your parts - hope that's your last storm.

  3. We are hearing about your weather on the news. Is there a burgeoning market for igloo-shaped stables?

  4. I feel your pain. We got hammered too. Couple of inches yesterday (which we did plow) and it does make it easier. Then another foot and a half overnight. Enough!!!
