The disappearing bench

We are snowed in.

I made it back from NJ just in time to miss the Nor'Easter that was supposed to hit down there worse than up here. HA! My reporter in Brigantine has nothing. Little Sista in Willingboro had some snow and then ice, enough to knock the power out for a couple of hours, but not a significant amount.

We, unlike any previous storms in Central NY for as far as Google can see, are completely snowed in! Yikes! Good thing I am not working this week. Traffic is not moving up here, even up here where they can move snow, no problem. The miracle Mr. Kelley has not been back since 8 am this morning.

In the big pics, you can see my disappearing bench in the snow. Next photo shows the Weber grill, a chair, and to the right of the chair, just barely, a round table. Isn't that table at least 30" off the ground? At 6 pm? And it's still snowing.

All will be OK. Woodstove if the power goes out. But really?

The Husband took off work today, and probably again tomorrow. He spent all day trudging through the snow taking care of goats, chickens, dogs. He sent me out there at dinner time to "really appreciate how much snow there is". I nearly passed out just walking from the house to the chicken coop to close them up.

The dogs have barely made a path about 3 feet through the mess to go do their business. One of us will clear a path for them tomorrow.

At least they can get outside and come back in. I feel for the critters who do not live indoors.
