It Won't Stop Snowing
All day long we had light snow and once again I was out shoveling the snow from the road that the crews keep putting right back into my driveway. Even when I trow the stuff I remove into my yard they bring more in from down the road.
Long range forecast is saying we are suppose to be back up into the 60's next week but until then everything is covered in piles of snow. I haven't seen piles this big since I lived in Germany or Wisconsin. The snowmeggedon of two years ago had more snow at one time but as usual with snow around here it melted pretty quick afterwards. We still have snow left from last week under all this new stuff.
The mini power outtages have dropped off to nothing now although I hear several people around the area are still totally without power. We now have some fairly well worn in paths in the snow to get around the Small-Hold without busting out through the deep stuff. I keep venturing out to make sure the hive entrances are open but other than the three big hives were I can hear buzzing inside I still have no clue how the smaller colonies are doing. I guess I won't know until it warms up.
Other than digging out and keeping warm things are pretty much at a standstill for any outside work now. I can't even see the raised beds under the snow anyway. The inside seedlings are coming up, even the peppers came up much quicker this year than last and tomorrow I need to thin them out and transplant the thinned ones that I can save. The Kale seedlings didn't fare as well as the cat kept knocking the little clear top off the tray in his attempt to take over their sunny spot, either that or my seeds were getting a bit too old. Not a big deal as I will just buy some plants around the end of March anyway. Had I really wanted to I could have attempted another round but the snow kinda got my mind off the seedlings for a bit.
I was getting sick of Winter as it was and really hoping for Spring and then this mess hits us. Now I am positively tearing my hair out for warmer temps.
Go away snow!!!!
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
