Digging Out

Well, as often as the weather man is WRONG about our forecast, he sure was RIGHT about this one.  At our house, we got about 20" of snow.  Seriously.  I have lived here my entire life, and I can count on one hand the number of times we've gotten a snow this deep. 

I have drifts at my back door that are nearly 5 feet deep.  I missed work on Tuesday AND Wednesday.  I couldn't get out of my driveway.  My husband's diesel pickup wouldn't start this morning.  Thank heavens the block heater on the tractor was plugged in! 

Thank you to each one of you who prayed.  So far, all four of our turkey barns are still standing.  And we haven't lost a baby calf, or a cow for that matter.  Our power stayed on the entire time.  God is so good!

I have LOTS of pictures of the storm, but, and I'm just keepin' it real here, I can't find the cable to hook my camera to the computer, so you'll have to wait.  But I PROMISE I will post pictures.  Ya gotta see it to believe it!!!!

It is cold here.  Bitterly cold.  About -4 degrees at my house, and that's Fahrenheit for my overseas buddies. 
I sure hope that Groundhog is right, 'cause I heard he DIDN'T see his shadow, which means spring is right around the corner! 

I hope all of you survived the blizzard, and that things are getting back to normal around your house.  Hang in there, spring is on the way! 


  1. Oh my~ I am so hoping you are getting dug out. It is so very cold.

    We only got 8 inches of snow and it has been a nightmare with the drifting and wind. I can only imagine.

    Hope you get back to normal soon!
    Sending warm blessings to you~

  2. We got clobbered with snow here in mid-MO, didn't we? I, for one, am quite ready for some warmer temps...not this -25 wind chill stuff. I've read that we might have another big snow next week, they're just not sure where in MO it will hit with the most yet. If everyone stays safe, that is the main thing! Take care and stay warm.

  3. BRRRRR...that's just too cold!!! I'm so glad all seems well with you and your animals. Yes, please show the pics!

  4. at 6:30 this morning my phone said it was -7 degrees outside. YUCK! I'm so ready for the white seas to go away!

  5. We've been keeping the eye on the weather out your way ..Goodness you have been blasted.
    It is raining here again today. ..dreary and dark but I won't complain.
    I smiled at the loss of the cable . .been there .. done that.
