Woke up to 9 inches of snow and still falling at 04:30AM, Donna left at 05:00AM for the truck company, I waited until 09:00AM and then John Deere and I went out to do battle with the snow, I spent about an hour and a half and then I put John in the garage and now I'll wait until this afternoon and just have to touch up whatever we get before it stops completely.
The Duramax is just sitting.
Rigg's is loving it. Here he is running in the snow.
John Deere doesn't mind piling the snow up.
The snow that is falling now is real fine and dry so even if we get a couple more inches it will plow fast now that I knocked the first 9 off. John is good for about a foot of snow, then I have to go to a bigger plow, so If I get out there and start while it is still snowing sometimes I can stay ahead of it.
Came in to let my hands and feet thaw out and made a bowl of Chicken Noodle soup, boy, was that good.
Donna sent an e-mail, she is the only one that made it into the office today. I don't think the restaurant will be busy unless they get all the streets plowed by 05:00PM, even then I don't think many people will go put to eat so she may have a short night tonight.
The temperature is 19 right now but is supposed to fall to 6 degree's tonight, who knows what the wind chill will be tomorrow morning when it's time for work again. Luckily she can park her SUV in my stall and my sons race car (camaro) is in her stall, so you see where that leaves my truck, out in the deep freeze, I don't plan on going anywhere but I will have to plug it in before I do.
Other than letting the dogs out once in awhile , not much going on in Dardenne Prairie, time comes to a stop during storms like this, so I will say see Ya until tomorrow. Be Safe out there. Sam & Donna.
