March Madness Snowstorm

It seems that every storm since Christmas has had us in it’s bull’s eye.  Many areas to our north have been mostly snowless, but we have been buried in snow.  Now comes March and we really get dumped on.IMG_1448

I know we got at least 10 inches of snow to go along with the stuff that had not melted from the past storms.IMG_1449

There was not a lot of blowing, but what there was left some interesting drifts to walk around to get to my snow removal equipment.  The snow was heavy and wet, so a blower had a hard time moving it, and some times the snow would not flow into the blower.  I ended up pushing some piles up behind my tractor blower.

I decided to move the minimal amount of snow I had to.  I’m hoping that warm temperatures and rain will move it out, but it is still going to take a long time to melt this snow.  As long as we have snow, the temperatures will not warm up, so melting will be slow.

With planting only a month away and Easter later this week, signs of spring are welcome.  It’s just that I know we have a lot of melting to do to get to spring.
