Austin, We Have Snow

26 Feb

We have dear friends there, and not in Houston.  No liftoff, just lots of shoveling.  Jay brought Isaac home Wednesday night just ahead of the start of the storm.  Isaac put in a few weeks worth of wood yesterday.  Both kids shoveled most of our driveway and a neighbor’s yesterday late afternoon.

By this morning there was another 12 inches.  Jay had to shovel to leave for work.  Even Cornell had a delay.  All schools closed for the second day.

Jay had to shovel a path just to open the door and get to the driveway!  The  goal: the garage and the chickens.

Hawthorne is like a snow walrus–he has to jump and flop and push to get anywhere since the depth of snow is up to or above his belly.  His legs are totally submerged.

Not that he minds.
