Blizzard of 2019

A Little Snow My last blog entry, on Feb 5th, mentioned that it looked like winter had finally arrived and, in addition to low-milk production, a little snow was expected which might cause additional delays in our delivery. At that time, neither I nor any weather service predicted how much of an understatement that was. On Feb 24th, without warning, the farm and surrounding forests was buried, overnight, in a 2-ft layer of wet, heavy snow and an additional foot the following day. The last time this area got that much snow was 50 years ago. Initially, we had to focus on clearing our road, the only route to food and fuel for the beings who live here on the farm.
