Just a quick note to say I am still here. I have been super busy with work, plus after school work (cleaning houses), and trying to figure out some wedding stuff. I promise I will post soon. We are supposed to get yet another storm on Saturday, so that should be a good day to catch up.

Few more pictured for you. These aren't the pretty side of the snow. These are the pictures of the mess we are constantly trying to dig out of. The temps have been pretty brutal, wind chills pushing -20.
T and I have been keeping busy working in the house today. We are still doing stuff to the bathroom and trying to get the house cleaned up for Mom and my sisters visit this week. Thank God for school vacation. Will post more later, it's 8:45 and we are just now having dinner.

This is getting ridiculous. The chicken run caved in under the weight of the snow. We can't get to the small door of the coop to close it now and it's in the single digits with negative temperatures due to windchill. The side door to the coop won't close all the way either because the snow is packed in and jamming it open.
We have some pretty major ice damns going on in two different spots of the roof.
The lower halves of the windows are blacked out by the snow.
Our driveway is still a mess, the walk ways are too narrow and another storm is coming tomorrrow night.

I am still here. Just haven't really felt like posting. It has been snowing for days now and is supposed to continue on and off throughout the weekend. I am so sick of winter. I have been thinking about my gardens and planning what seeds to order. I still have so long to wait before I can do anything though.
We have had to pick up our mail at the post office for the last 3 weeks because we are unable to dig out our mailbox. The driveway is a mess, and continues getting narrower and narrower with every storm. The biggest problem is finding places to put all of the snow. All of the snowbanks are shoulder level or higher for me so soon it will be impossible for me to lift the shovel high enough. The worst part of these storms is that they are alternating between snow sleet and ice. This makes it so heavy. Last week it was impossible to clear the snow because there was a thick crust of ice across the surface.
I did my best to shovel off some of the roof to the chicken coop today. You can see it sagging from the inside and seeing as the chickens won't venture out in the snow, I am afraid the roof will collapse on them.
I am sick of posting boring snow pictures. Hopefully me posts will be a little more exciting next time.
