As The Snow Blows ......
The storm arrived in the wee hours of the morning. It is coming down fast and hard and the wind is ferocious. The wind is always a huge factor here. We have a covered area over our back door where we put the firewood. But, depending on which way the wind is blowing, it doesn't always stay dry.
Since I could not sew yesterday, I layered on the sweats and jackets and ventured out. It was not that cold and the wind was calm and before long I was sweating as I hauled wood to the front porch. I reasoned that at least one pile of firewood would remain dry. I filled my golf cart twice and put about 8 days worth of warmth on the front porch, close to the front door into the store. That's me, always prepared.
Both wood piles are covered in about 3" of snow. The wind is blowing huge drifts, making me regret not bringing the snow shovel in. Not to worry. The snow is light and fluffy and the dust pan has proved to be sufficient for the area in front of the door. It will need to be scooped out again in a couple of hours.
I am prepared, though ........ dustpan in hand.
