Time to improvise

Stetson, Farfalla, Jippo

Yesterday I also spent time adding temporary step-in posts to raise the level of the fence where the snow drifted over.

It is not ideal but works for now, the horses are pretty good about respecting the hotwire. I'll have to raise the level of that fence again when things thaw out.

On my birthday

The wind is still blowing and drifting over the top of the fence

I have been snowed in for 9 days and we're all sick

Tomorrow a skidster is being delivered if they can get through. That should dig us out so things are looking up.

Drifted again

Heading out to get propane on the snowmobile

snow covering a horse feeder in the back dry lot

The road is completely drifted back over, 4'+ deep on one side

We should have left the truck on the other side, 
here the drifted snow is 3' deep

And the snow keeps blowing
