The Snow Aftermath

We ended up with 11 inches of snow about 11 pm last night.  A lot of power flickers, but at least the power stayed on.  This morning, we spent 2 1/2 to 3 hours shoveling and snowblowing snow.  Our neighbor, Marvin, came down and plowed out the lane to the driveway, so that cut down a lot on the snowblowing.  Still an awful lot to do, though.  We have some downed tree limbs and the chicken run has broken cross beams from the weight of the snow, but that's tomorrow.  It's going to be a bit of cleanup.  The chickens DO NOT like snow.  They will not leave the coop after one's bravery scared her!!!!  Took some pictures before we destroyed the untouched snow.  It was absolutely gorgeous this morning!!  (Tempered with the fact we knew how much shoveling we were going to do).  Happy Birthday to me!!!!
