First of all, I feel like I should say Happy Valentine’s Day! Now that we got that out of the way….
We got a whole lot of snow dumped on us over the past two days. The snow started on Wednesday afternoon and didn’t let up until Thursday evening.
|Thursday morning, before we got another 10 hours worth of snow|
In the morning I did my 30 day shred, level 1 workout. Then I worked from home all day because there was no way I could drive. Our road never even got plowed until around noon. In the afternoon I did an easy 3 mile run on the treadmill and then got down to digging out my work and personal vehicles and shoveling our driveway. I probably could have done without the two earlier workouts because the shoveling wore me out.
Hank and Scout wore themselves out as well, playing outside in the snow numerous times throughout the day.

As pleased as Hank and Scout were with the snow, that’s how displeased the chickens were. The poor things were actually snowed in, because we had so much snow it was covering the door to their chicken run. Not that they go out in the snow, though.
When I opened the main door to the coop and asked if they wanted to come out in the snow they said no we don’t and please shut the door!
|That was as much as I could get the door open|
The cows behind our house also did not seem very pleased with the snow. Usually they run off when Hank or Scout charge the fence, but today they just stood there.
Barry got a good picture of the cows last night, when they were right up against the fence. A few felt like posing and stood and stared straight at him. Probably hoping he’d bring them inside…
So far we still have power. Fingers crossed it stays on! The snow has stopped, but now it’s super windy. We’re supposed to get some more snow tonight. As a result of all the snow (I think we got around 18 inches) tomorrow’s 10 mile race has been postponed.
Did you get any snow as a result of this storm? If so, how much?
Have you ever had a race get postponed or canceled?
If you have pets, do they like the snow?
