Pippa following in Pearl's track to get a little jaunt outside this morning.
Maybe we should bring in the folding chairs?
She loves the snow!
This morning when Jen went to let the dogs out, the front door resisted. It took her a second to figure out that the snow had piled up so high that it was blocking the door. She told me excitedly about her beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder, and how Jen had never quite believed that overnight snow could accumulate enough to block their door and force them to crawl out the upstairs window and shovel pathways through the snow that looked like tunnels. Well, we are not quite there yet, but it is easy to see how if this amount of snow got to blowing around, we could have some serious drifts that could block the way. We probably have about 10 new inches of snow out there, but we haven’t yet done a meticulous study. And there is more coming down! There certainly is enough snow to make the students’ newfound skill in snowshoeing come in handy.
Of course, the myth was busted by the
plow barreling through and carving a single lane up 30th St. Because of all the dairy farms in this area, there is a robust tradition of plowing promptly. We are often quite pleased that our road has been plowed long before that of our families in the Twin Cities. My next move is to go push some snow around to try and stay ahead of it. I think the piles will maybe make good quinsies tomorrow, and be beautiful for the Holiday Fair. New Haven Township
