" It " is Still - Here
Okay - well - I cheated my way into some fun this morning! I used a Quick-Pick page that Katie - aka “ Just So Scrappy “ designed and included in the entire Bundle package for her kit called " Snow Buddies " that I purchased at Digital Design Den.
And I’m glad I bought that entire bundle. It’s got a BUNCH of really cool stuff!
All this snow we’ve received has been wonderful. It hasn’t been such a shocking surprise to me. Of course - I’m constantly keeping my eyes on weather.com - part of that bag of habits formed in the mindset of any obsessive gardener. By the time winter comes - period - I’ve already been working toward stocking up the house - for these very same type of events.
Easy math - think worst case scenario - prepare for camping!
We’d gone to bed Sunday night knowing that the storm was coming. We keep a television going in the bedroom. Yeah - I know. Can’t go to sleep without the television.
But ask my family what happens to me when I lay down in front of a television. One more thing my husband and I have in common.
Anyway - both of us practically sat up in bed around 5:30am from hearing, “ Madisonville is reporting around 7 inches of snow this morning…. “
“ WHOA…. WHAT? “ Madisonville is only right down the road - about 5 minutes away from our house. Reports had warned us to expect only about 4 inches at the very worst.
It was 7:30am before we managed to get dressed and succomb to going out to measure the depth of snow.
It was a matter of killing 2 birds with one stone.
We were pushed into a con job - getting Zucker to dive in and find a place to take care of his business.
We’d received 4.5 inches so far. By the end of the day - we’d received another half-inch. And it was still coming down in flurries.
I’ve ended up making a ditch from the house to the chicken coop.
Waking up this morning - it’s - still here. Up until now we’ve been lucky enough to have the snow mostly melted away within a day or two.
Fortunately - we do have supplies. I’m backed up with over 6 dozen eggs from the girls. HA!
Oh - one more thing! We collected 8 eggs from our 9 girls yesterday! Happy Wenches!
