Snow work part two

This is what we found this morning when we finally pushed open the front door after last nights nor'easter.

About two feet of new snow, on top of last week's one foot, on top of a few inches old old hard snow.

Time to break out the Kubota again. It took about four hours of plowing and shoveling to get us all broken out and ready for the somewhat delayed work week again.

The storm track, which tends to follow just below the standing wave of the jet stream, is crossing Maine again. For several weeks there it was south of us. Now it's moving north. Believe it or not, we see this as a sign of spring.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
