Blizzard of 2011 Special Edition

Blizzard of 2011 Special Edition

Pretty landscapes are a distant thought until the dangers and effects of the blizzard are subdued

Here I am reporting to you from the Blizzard of 2011 Mansfield Ct. a bit frosty

Tim working at making a path passable in our driveway

Could use a bigger tractor in this battle

the eerie glow of his lights, now where do we put all that snow?

My effort to keep a one shovel width path to the house cleared filled in 2″ in an hour

Somewhere over the snowpile our horse trailer

9:30 a.m. it is still coming down. Hard to get an accurate total in windswept Mansfield Ct. but I think there is over 2 feet of snow so far, it is still coming down. Visibility is improved but still a reduced amount. The cold wind driven snow stings at the eyes.
I am in on a coffee and cooking break. I have all our horses, goats and the 2 rabbits fed and watered. It took a massive amount of shoveling just to accomplish that. The rest of the family is still out there. Most of the work at the dairy is done for the morning. My son drove to and from work on his tractor clearing his own way. Now he has our driveway passable for the short term and gone down the road to plow his Grandfather’s driveway.
We are so grateful to the manufaturers of Carhart clothes! We just would hate to attempt a storm of this caliber without our Carhart Coats, sweatshirts and coveralls.
