Various names were given for the storm that slammed into Connecticut on Friday and Saturday: Charlotte, Nemo or Blizzard 2013, depending on who you talk to. It put down about 30 inches of snow in our yard. In some places the drifts are over our four foot tall fences! Thankfully the lights only flickered and we never lost power.
|We (and by "we" I mean the children) started |
shoveling paths to the barns at 6AM.
The snow was still coming down at a
rate of 1-2 inches per hour!
|Can barely make out that Abby is halfway to the barn.|
|Turk is chest deep in the snow and LOVING it!|
|Nathalie is digging a path to the bucks.|
|The Old Chicken Coop (will be the Sugar Shack next week IF we can dig it out!)|
|Abby made it to the barn door at 7:20|
|Samantha finds a way to stay out of the wind!|
|Jumping into the snowbanks so another person can pass.|
|Abby tries to make a snow angel|
|Nathalie dumps a shove FULL of snow on her head!|
The sun finally came out and the snow stopped falling!
|Abby hits Hannah with a shovelful of snow.|
|Pippi had fun running on the paths.|
Hard to believe, but on Monday we'll be tapping trees and making maple syrup!
