We made it. We survived the blizzard of 2015. This is what the beginning looked like...
Honestly, we didn't have it too bad. We never lost power and we are not near the ocean, so no worries about flooding. My biggest worry was how to get to my chickens. This is the view from our upstairs window, so they are not very far away. I shoveled, a neighbor boy with a good heart shoveled, and we got over there.
This is about 1/2 way through the storm. The reed screen didn't work as well as I had hoped and a bunch of snow got in.
I had to shove it out, which was a huge pain. Also the girls were not huge fans of stepping on snow. But no worries...
I saved some pine needles last fall, just for this. They were much happier. And I have plans for next winter, don't worry.
Then later on my sweetie made me a delicious Moscow Mule and I was much happier.
All-in-all a pretty good blizzard.
