The blizzard at Chestnut Creek Farm

Since Maryland has experience record snowfall this year (more than Buffalo, Maine, and all the normal record makers), I thought it warranted some pics. My parent's farm, where I'm living this year, is about 65 acres, located in Westminster. I don't know the official accumulations - but once both blizzards passed through we were around 40".

Poor Remi could only go where we had cleared a path. It meant it was harder for him to run off, though... hehe

A lot of snow had accumulated on one side of our roof, because there were strong winds, you can see at the top of the kitchen window all the snow!

Here's the lane after the second round of snow and with all drifts created by the wind. You can see my mom at the very end.

The veggie garden and the chicken coop behind it.

The accumulations are unbelievable! It reminds me of growing up in Northern BC Canada, one year we got 13 Feet of snow. Our roads had very high banks of snow along them. I live in Manitoba, Canada now and we don't get that much snow at one time. We have over a foot on the ground and that is more than we got all winter long last year. I hope you are enjoying it, I sure do enjoy ours. Hugs, Cindy S
