We got about 6" of heavy wet snow last night. it was dead still and the flakes were huge. It weighed down a lot of trees and off went the power at about midnight. This was supposed to be a few showers or an inch or 2 of snow but changed at the last minute.
We got the power back at about 10AM. I got the PTO generator going on the tractor early this morning for a couple of hours before it came back on. The ground is so saturated with water from the week long thaw we've had that I didn't dare use the blade on the driveway. I used the blower which has the skids set high so I'm not throwing rocks all the time.
Heres some pics of the mess. It was mild this afternoon and all the snow in the trees came crashing down.
Heres the driveway. The birch trees took a beating.
You can see the trees into the wires here on the road we live on.
