warm and more snow

I used the snowblower to clean out the driveway. It wasn't too bad since the snow was new and still fluffy. It is about 15 degrees warmer today with just a dusting of snow. Vurvian will take Shelly to the airport on Thursday so she can fly back to San Antonio. Tia will leave to stay with Heidi when the weather is clear.

snow, snow, snow

I woke up this morning to find about 6 inches of snow in the driveway. Fortunately I had backed the van in so I just had to drive forward. There was about a foot of plowed snow before I hit the county road but I just plowed through it. I spent all day Friday snowblowing through 4 feet of snow to get the van out of the snow by the garage to the drive way. Fortunately the snow blower is working. Tonight----snowblower.

Warm snow?

It snowed last night. We got a couple inches. I sent out to melt the ice and the holes from yesterday were still open. I guess the snow kept things warmer.

January is here. The ponds are frozen except for the floating pond de-icer. I melt holes in the little pond with a pot of boiling water every day. Yesterday Vurvian and I went to Boise. I was given a gift certificate for the Outback Restaurant plus we had a Deseret Book gift certificate to use. I spent my extra calories for the month, probably for 2 months.

Ice is thick

I have been melting a hole in the ice in the little pond. I tried today to melt a hole in the big pond. I put 3 pots of boiling water and still didn't get through. I lacked about 1/2 inch to go. Maybe tomorrow.

Wind and Snow

Friday it was very windy. I had to dodge tumbleweeds blowing over the freeway all the way from Boise back to Ontario. We had some snow but not much. It was a lot warmer today.

Snow Day

The snow remains on the ground. Fortunately the roads are clear. Temperatures remain below freezing. I had to use a pot of hot water to melt a hole in the small pond ice. I have a ice melter for the big pond.
