Welcome to my front porch!
A snowstorm swept through our area for two days beginning the early morning of 3/23/09 and ending on the afternoon of 3/24/09. We figure it dumped 2 feet of snow on us. Accompanying the snow were extremely high winds that caused areas to drift as you can see by this little photo journal.
Here is part of the drifting that happened around our barns and corrals.
And this is the sheep shed where we've been lambing for a couple of weeks.
This is the Youngest Son who walked up our road to see if the wind had drifted snow back into the path that we drove through just a couple of hours previous. We didn't want to get stuck in a deep, hard snowdrift.
Not the greatest picture, but this is my little bit of "sunshine amidst the storm." Lots of meadowlarks and robins were grounded during this storm. There are gobs of them home for the spring/summer. "Spring" in the north can look like winter. The good news is, it won't last for long, there will plenty of water in the stock ponds, and green grass is just around the corner.
P.S. The livestock made it through the storm just fine. We didn't lose our electricity which is a very common occurrence during weather events.
