Storm Photos

This afternoon I stepped outside to take a few photos.  The wind was still blowing, but had calmed down a bit from what it had been doing. 

 Looks like the car won't be going anywhere for a while -- at least until the snowplow comes through.

 The hoop house area looks like a real mess.  I need to cut down the leftovers of my elecampane plants and also another bush.  We finally located a farmer who is willing to sell us straw bales.  It was much nicer when we could get them closer to home, but the weather was so rainy this spring that almost no one in the Turtle Mountains was able to plant any crops.  We need to cover our drain field area and my herb beds with straw before the real cold weather begins. 

There's a big drift by our old van. 

I saw the long range forecast, and supposedly a week from now we are to have temperatures in the 50's.  Maybe that will give us more time to get ready for winter.

Jonathan needs to do his egg route tomorrow, and someone is supposed to pick up some other items, but nothing will happen until the snowplow comes through.  I'm thankful we never lost electricity; it's one item I'm very attached to.

I don't like the looks of those drifts. It will be nice to get rid of them soon!

We are thankful that all we got is rain and a lot of wind. Many branches down, but at least we don't have to shovel! Hope it all melts soon for you!
