We have gotten some serious snow this year. We have snow up to the doorstep... which is over 2' off the ground and we even shoveled that area!! All our paths look like canyons carved through the snow just wide enough to get the sled through. I must have shoveled at least 10 tons of snow between clearing paths, excavating our stored supplies, and digging the truck out of drifts. There are drifts up to my chest in the woods around us, and most places are at least up to my hips when I punch through the hard pack. CRAZY.
And wouldn't you know, after clearing a whole bunch more while it was sunny and melty last week... it's decided to snow AGAIN. So far, we've gotten at least another 8-9 inches this weekend and it's still coming down hard. I swear shoveling and snow must be like washing your car and rain.
Other than the return of the sun and temps mostly above zero, you sure wouldn't guess that it's nearly April. Other folks down in the L48 are already harvesting their early garden crops and we can't even see the tops of most saplings much less any soil. I'm betting that we're going to have a long squelchy mucky boggy break up again this year. The truck is already parked at the top of the driveway because of the snow, maybe it's time we took her up to the road before everything turns to mud.
