Snow Removal


Last week we received about 11 inches of snow.  And it blew (both literally and figuratively). 

This week, we got another 1-2 inches of snow and it blew again.  

So, we've been stuck at home a lot in the past 2 weeks.  Luckily, the power never went out, so we were able to enjoy the modern luxuries of heat, lights, internet, and television. 

After snow events, or on days that the snow blows into drifts, the monotonous task of moving snow begins.  In order to feed the livestock (and get out of the driveway) we have to get it moved.  Since AJ is the one to do chores, he is tasked with snow removal!

I got a new camera, so I got to test it a little.  Take a look at some of those piles!!

The snow piles are fun areas to play.

Can you see the 3 piles?

The hog barn also needs snow moved.

Lucky AJ at least has a cab!

Above is a video of AJ moving the snow. 

And, while AJ is fighting the snow piles, I am fighting the paper piles.
