Snow

One good thing about snow, life has to slow down!

I was unable to get to work on Friday, TOWPCOE also lost Today and looks like no catching up tomorrow. So we’re hunkered down for an evening by the wood burner after shifting over 20 tonnes of snow* between 4 of us, makes you realise there are disadvantages of having a 100m long drive.

A large branch from the Wellingtonia that fell Friday night, luckily missing most of the veg beds.

Polytunnel after one snow clearance, we had to dig it away from the sides too, it was stretching the skin a bit.

We've not had it this deep in 10 years.

* Apparently 1 cubic foot of snow weighs about 15lbs
so 300ft by 10 ft and it was at least a foot deep works out as just over 20

Chickens being intrepid, we cleared an area around the coop for them, but they do like to come and hang around the porch all day.
