The last snowstorm dumped somewhere around 2 feet of snow on us. Enjoy the pics from Leaky Creek.
I am lucky that I have a John Deere with a front end loader and an awesome neighbor to use it. My tractor skills aren’t very good.

Two new round bales are a good thing when they're calling for a "blizzard." 2-5-10
I’m so glad that I had two new round bales. It made horse care SO much easier!!! I only had to carry hay to Winston & he was in the same barn the hay is in, so no having to go outside. Wheelbarrows don’t work very well in snow.
The next day brought drastically changed terrain…
Starting with snow in the garage... I don't know if I've ever seen snow in the garage... better than snow in the house... 2-6-10
With snow still heavily falling it was already at least to the horses knees. Tiny & Amber 2-6-10 9 AM

Rascal discovers that I actually did plow a path!
Soon Punkin finds the path, too. 2-7-10
Finally, today, I let Nathaniel outside. We went to the grocery store. 2-8-10
So far, so good. I dreaded the storm without John here. John always took care of everything. He shoveled. He dug the cars out. Sometimes he plowed, sometimes our neighbor plowed. John would also helped me with the horses if I needed his help.
But, so far, so good.
Brookview isn’t plowed. Who knows when they’ll plow that. I guess if they have a funeral they will.
