|Snow Days on Concord Road|
I shoveled a path to the wood pile yesterday but the continuing snow filled it up again almost immediately. The path I made last night is mostly uncovered still, though. Yesterday afternoon I loaded a backpack with water for the chickens and broke through the drifts in the driveway to head over and tend the chickens for the evening. Fortunately a snow plow had gone down the road once on Wednesday so the snow on the road was only about 8 inches deep. Otherwise I would never have made it to the farm. The drifts were deep across the fields and it was something of a chore to make it to the coop and then to the house to take the eggs in, but I managed just fine, feeding the farm cat along the way. The skiing friend came along while I was discovering, to my dismay, that the freezer at the house is no longer working. More food for the chickens, unfortunately!
