A quick glimpse at some snow highlights on the farm–
Its never fun to lose electric power and phone service, but we had some fun with it and appreciated roughing it for a while. I think my boys enjoyed candlelight so much that they would like a lights-out night every once in a while, when we set up a lantern and skip the lights for the night. Since we heat the house with wood anyway, we weren’t freezing without electricity, I’d be complaining if I had been freezin! We melted snow over the woodstove for drinking water…I’m grateful that power returned after a couple days, I would not have been happy melting snow for the cow water trough. There’s no skipping pancakes around here:
Skiing on the farm was fun in this big snow.
