Snowstorm 2016 on the Farm

This is a short little video of the snowstorm here on the farm.  We ended up with 18" of snow.  I know that several places got a lot more but here in KY that is a pretty big snow.  Hunter is 13 and this is the biggest snow that he has seen. 
Thank God that Richard was off the weekend and was home.  Monday morning it took him about 30 minutes to make the 1 mile trek out to the blacktop road.  When he got off work Monday night he could not make it back up the hill with the Jeep.  He did make it to my sister's house which is a mile away and she let him use their 4-wheeler to come on up the hill.  

Tuesday morning he had to ride the 4-wheeler back down the 1-mile hill at 5:15am to get the Jeep and go on to work!  I'm sure that was really cold but he didn't say anything about it.  He is not one to miss work, so if he can get there he will.  

I'm just hoping that I can get off this hill by Saturday because I have a Yo-Yo class scheduled that evening.  I think most other roads in the county are pretty clear now but we are usually the last place to thaw out.

18" is quite the snow storm--we had 8" in Nashville--it was beautiful but made for havoc on the roads--was thankful to be snowed in for a few days

Wow, what a snow storm for sure. Hope the snow will be melting soon. I hear temps are going to rise considerably into the weekend so hopefully you will make you class.

Wow! What a snow storm! I'm amazed that your husband was able to get to work at all. Where I live in Texas, just one inch of snow creates all kinds of havoc because people here do NOT know how to drive under those conditions. I hope you and your family stay warm and safe, and that the roads clear so you can still have your class. If not, I hope you will stay home and sew, sew sew. ---"Love"

That's a LOT of snow! Hope things get back to at least near normal so you can make it to your class!
