Friday night we had the 2013 blizzard: close to two feet on bare ground. The governor declared a state of emergency and no one was allowed to drive on the roads: up to 1 year in jail and a $500 fine.
So we stayed home and watched the snow fall. Next day we got up and began clearing away the snow. Here are a few pictures of what we did.
As always this was made more interesting by the actions of the snow plow. Usually I cut a path under the maple to refill the bird feeders. Since that was where the snow blow threw the snow I decided this time they had to fend for themselves.
Not to mention a place for poor Penny to do what must be done.
By and large, however, we came through pretty unscathed. We have a couple of feet of snow on the roof and we can get everywhere we need to. No loss of power to speak of-- though we had the generator ready. Number 1 snow blower did most of the work before it failed but we had Number 2 snow blower to finish. When the weather warms a bit I'll bring in Number 1 and see what happened. I suspect it is just a belt adjustment.
That's the rumors behind the news.
