NO MORE SNOW!!!!!!!!!

Above are two views out the side/back door toward the barn. In the photo on the left, you can just about spy the jeep behind bank of snow, just to the right of the shed. The photo to the right shows our shoveling efforts: the snow had drifted over the door, most of the approach (about 10-15 feet of it) was a good 4 feet deep, and naturally we dug our way in.

I have had more than enough snow for one winter in just two days. We shoveled and snowblowed time and time again, only to have the wind fill the paths back in just hours. It's been a lesson in futility. Today, the wind persists. And the snow continues to drift...

So.... that said... the next person who gleefully proclaims "I love winter! It's my favorite time of year..." well, they won't be met with a warm reception and a mug of hot chocolate. No sireeeee.

On a more positive note, the dogs are having the time of their lives in the snow, and I don't think I've ever seen the horses out and about so much...
