sorry it has been a while - i have been busy working on an IT project for a local company - AND clearing snow - here is tuesday after the storm
atv outta the shed - it helped a bit, but the snow was pretty packed...
and there is the road plus snowplow deposits - took 2 hours to shovel that out!!
hey ho - blizzard next day - truckdura (moved closer to the road) on wednesday!!!
the rest was done by hand...
as far as i got...
back of the house...
front of the house....
dishwasher still in the basement - those bins are full of dirty dishes..
which get carried through this door!!! not optimal - we have a cunning plan for next winter!!!
i did more driveway yesterday and woke up today to finish the job - we are getting rain followed by a freeze - it HAS to be finished!!! truckdura
and what is left - see BIG new snowplow pile - the alps!!!
i tried using the atv yesterday but the snow is too deep and packed - i have to cut out one chunk at a time... i fell last sat and bruised my rib which didn't help - lift with the legs buddy, with the legs!!!
first pass - to the mountains then stopped for awesome kymber-lunch of everything salad!!!!
now tackling the mountains!!!
i thought it was 100 feet but started to suspect more.... so i got a 200 foot tape measure..
yep 166 feet to the truck from the bottom of the driveway!!!
and done!! all with a crappy shovel - the rain will come pouring down there!!
and onto this road - i have to go to work monday and after the rain it will freeze so i trotted down to the low spot at the right...
and made a helping trench at the side so that the water won't pool and make a frozen lake!!
a couple of weeks back there was a new bird in the tree....
there is a BIG fat ruffed grouse eating the buds off the apple tree - been quite the winter!
hopefully the rain will clear the driveway and get rid of some snow - we are going to have seasonal temps soon - that will be a blessing!
happy spring everyone!!!
