After Spring arrived, we got dumped on by a foot of snow. — 16 Comments

  1. Here in Duluth we received about 10 inches where we live and the sustained wind of 40 mph with gusts up to 60 was incredible. Thankfully all buildings stayed intact. I am glad Will could plow that heavy wet snow. We had the same difficulty plowing and I actually got stuck 3 times but thankfully was able to get out. Praying you were able to close on the additional 40 acres. So glad our snow is melting especially with yesterday’s high in the 50’s

  2. If it’s any consolation,I planted your bill bean, providers, and hopi pale greys in 78° Temps today. Still sending prayers for ya’ll and David today, and spring will come soon, as it always has…with warm and green wishes too.

    • Mimi, I’m SO jealous!! How exciting. Yesterday we saw 60 degrees with sun and were thrilled beyond words. But today it’s cloudy and rainy. Booo

    • Yes, we will. We’ve seen bears, wolves, lynx and even a young cougar so far and we sure love those big pines!

  3. Spring in the Midwest, ya gotta love it. We got an inch of snow but areas a few miles to 40 miles from us got 3 to 8 inches. Upside is we got the half a downed tree cleaned up before it hit (I’m sure you got the wind earlier this week).

    I hate to say it but if you need just a bit more for the down payment and you have a CC, I’d take a cash advance and pay it off ASAP. There are times when you need to have a short dance with the devil. Don’t let a few bucks prevent the purchase of the 40 acres.

    • Yeah, we thought about using a cash advance but holy cow, the interest rates are HORRIBLE. Fortunately, we scrambled around and finally got enough cash to make that down payment. Whew!

  4. Is the winter ever going to end for you guys? Here’s hoping it does soon as l know your itching to get into the gardens again. My one raised beds is planted full and doing good. I will probably plant the other three this week as Oklahoma has decided to cooperate. Best of luck to David and Ashley on their cabin. Be safe all of you as l so enjoy reading your posts.

      • Yeah, it’s kind of an addiction. But Will and I have both had very bad remote neighbors in the past. (One of ours murdered a guy when he stumbled upon him cooking meth!) So besides saving the big pines, we are also buying more distance between us and possible poor neighbors.

  5. We were on the southern edge of that storm and fortunately just got rain and a skiff of snow. The wind has been terrible for the last week and is blowing like crazy today. That would do a good job of drying things off if only it didn’t rain every other day! I have one flower bed that I didn’t clear last fall but its been too muddy to work out. We went into winter with excess ground moisture then have had exceptional snow and rain this winter/spring.
