A deep blanket of heavy wet snow has settled over Hickery Holler. It has snowed for 2 days and is still snowing. As I listen to the radio they predict chances for more snow tonight and tomorrow. Then another storm to move through about Monday. I think mother nature woke up after a really dry summer, fall and early winter and decided to bless us with some much needed precipitation. We just didn't know we would get it all at one time.
O Wise One has shoveled those steps three times and it is still snowing. He said that is it! No more shoveling till it quits. Oh my.....
That's the upper deck.
Turkey house and run.
Somewhere in there is my driveway!
Everyone deals with snow differently. As for me I just hunker down and cook. With a hot venison vegetable soup simmering on the back of the stove.
And warm homemade bread to absorb all that good broth.
And some fresh sweet potato muffins to snack on while I find things to occupy myself. And before you ask just take my zucchini bread recipe and substitute shredded sweet potato for zucchini.
Cause I'm not going anywhere till it quits snowing because we can't manage to keep the doors open.
And the last we checked this is what the roads look like.
Some like to get out and brave the elements!
And some like Riley just don't even bother.
The electricity continues to flicker on and off but for the most part we are warm and safe. We hope everyone else out there in this storm is too!
