Oh Boy!!! Three days from hell, snow and more snow,winds and more winds. Easily the worse storm of the winter and damn it, its spring already. The weather people called it a weather bomb and I would agree. The whole island was shut down for two days, even the bridge was closed. We lost power on Wednesday at 5 pm, and got it back on Friday at 2 am. The few remaining logs in our wood pile was down to three when the power returned. Schools are still closed on day three, mainly because the majority of the country roads are not yet open. The plows are out but it will be a while before we are back to normal. The end of our driveway has a bank of snow at least five feet high and almost as tough as concrete. We are waiting for a our neighbour Dennis with his tractor to blow us out, our snow blower just isn’t up to the job. We received a total of 53 centimeters of snow and the gale force winds caused huge drifts everywhere. On top of this we have more snow coming on Sunday, maybe another 10-20 centimeters. The only nice thing that can be said about this storm was that our Neighbour Mark trudged through the snow on snow shoes to check on us. He wanted to make sure we were okay and had heat , this is the kind of thing neighbours did years ago. We are so grateful for his kindness and concern, the one highlight of the storm. Well that’s my blog for the day I’m off to have a much needed hot shower.
God Bless and keep reading
