Snow Storm December 18, 2009

So, this snow storm made the first stnow storm look like nothing. I think we ended up with somewhere around 2'. MUCH more than we have seen in quite a few years!! Slowed us down quite a bit and heaven only knows when lessons will be able to start back up. It is pretty, but sure creates a lot more work! There's a lot of pictures here.

The only way we got done as "quickly" as we did was because of the big Agco tractor. First real snow we've had since getting it. It was GREAT! Joel plowed most of the farm with the front end loader.
