We were doing just fine without any snowfall this year. February wanted to catch up for months of mild weather by hitting us with low freezing temps and a couple snow storms that broke our record all the way back to 1923!
I was as prepared as I could be. Only one extended power outage due to trees and power lines down across our entrance road overnight made it a little uncomfortable. I needed to scoop snow and fill the ice chests to put the fridge and freezer food in, out in the mudroom. This is a perfect way to preserve your food by the way. Outside temps were cooler than a refrigerator.
I of course have a large wood stove and a woodshed near the house.
I shoveled the decks and steps several times and dug a path out to the road. Moved the car down there early on. Each new accumulation I would eyeball a measurement. I'd say we got about 30 inches of snow over a three day period. Most I've ever had up here in 20 years, let alone in my whole life!
So here are some photos in different stages of the mess.
