    I would of loved, just snow. We got about 3 inches of Ice and the power went out yesterday at about 4 pm.
    We just got it back on bout an hour ago. We do have a big generator that runs the whole house, thank goodness.

    But the wind was terrible and 3" of ice mixed with wind.....Well needless to say , we have trees broken down every where and our
    property looks like a war zone! It will take weeks to clean up.
    The temperatures have rose a bit, so it is starting to melt off some.

    Anyhow, thank goodness, my goat barn was not hit by anything and my babies are fine.

    We have power again, and all is O.K. again..

    Re: Big snow

    I don't envy you at all! It's still coming down here and we've gotten just about 6".....so I guess the weatherman was right when he said the storm track was moving up the eastern seaboard. Stay warm and be careful when you are on the roads.....even with the amount here, hubby had an awful time pulling the hill home in 4 wheel drive. :(

    Glad the boys had fun...your girls are sweet all lined up like ducks on their path, mine haven't left the barn at all today.

    Re: Big snow

    Liz I was suppose to work today - boss couldnt get ahold of the owner so she said you have to go in im sorry I cant make the decision to close the shop. I was using 4wheel drive and I was crying and praying and panicking and I didnt even get 3 miles in 15 min. I called my boss and she said to go home.

    a 8-10 min round trip took me 35 mins and I was praying the whole way and trying not to panic.

    So needless to say I am just happy to be shoveling snow and not in the hospital somewhere :greengrin:

    Re: Big snow

    there was only like 6-8 inches when I left this morning.

    I say ONLY but even that is a lot for us!

    they are saying this is the largest snow fall for our area in December in over 200 years! :shocked:

    Re: Big snow

    We are right there with you-down here in Shenandoah Valley, VA-got 2.5 feet of snow. Needless to say, we are stuck. Our goats are in their stall and doing fine, but our chickens aren't too happy..hopefully we won't have fresh frozen in the morning....OY-too much snow, and it's only December, not even officially winter yet!

    Re: Big snow

    It finally stopped here...we have over 2 feet, probably a record breaking snowfall for December, and it isn't even winter yet! Tomorrow will be an interesting day of shoveling!

    Re: Big snow

    Sorry for being redundant in my previous post. Will take good pics without snow falling tomorrow and try to post. I have been having trouble getting them the right size on here...but will surely try!
