The packed snow is 4 feet deep on the average
Sunday morning shortly after sunrise and the power was off too since Saturday noon. Fortunately the standby was ready.
Starting to dig out Sunday morning
Monday and Tuesday were spent trying to open driveways
Wednesday, January 3 late afternoon
Wednesday morning the county opened the road (above) with a crawler and dozer and came through the deep snow in our driveway so that we were able to then use our tractor with the dozer and our utility tractor with the scoop to finally open our driveway to the road by evening.
February 18, approximately 5 inches new snow fell last week
The column below on the left was a core taken from the above location on February 21. The column on the right was the water content of the core sample after it was melted down.
