Groundhog Dump Day, aka, Blizzard of 2011. Record breaking 24 hour snow for February 1, February 2, February in general, and still debating the all time record setting 24 hour snow storm. The debate is whether or not the Blizzard of 1978 was bigger. I have heard the tales and I do not believe we can ever live up to it’s legend. We’ll see what the record keepers decide……..
Personally, for us, this our biggest hit. Winter of 2009 was comparable. It was the last time a Blizzard warning was issued. It was big. But GVSU didn’t cancel classes, then, and they did, today, ahead of time, even. Yay for all the 4th year college students experiencing one of their few, college life, snow days!!! Go ahead and wear those pj’s inside out and backwards, one more day. It can’t hurt.
Oh, and by the way, Punxsutawney Phil emerged, just after dawn, this morning, to look for his shadow. He didn’t find it. Spring is Near!!! Right…….
Pretty much 15″ everywhere, here, at 8am, it only got worse… until sometime after noon.
Drifts were more than 36″ in some places.
and what did *you* do for a workout today???
My ladies were right & tight in their coop today– a steam 40+ degrees in there– wouldn’t want the eggs to freeze. But you can be they weren’t venturing outside, they would disappear in this snow. Even the cows were unhappy about walking in snow that touched their bellies in some areas of the pasture!!
So are you thinking of shoveling or plowing the cows more space? ; )
Great Lori. Thanks for sharing these pictures. Love the look of your house also.
Thanks, Pam. Just a peak into our lives….
Awww, Lori, you really are trying to make me envious now, aren’t you?!
I am meticulously studying every picture, drinking it in!! You are soooo lucky!! (I know you may not agree!) LOL!!
Now, if only I could study my books with such enthusiasm! 🙂
