All the snow and ice just came off our roof with a huge slam. I looked at my wife and said, "Did YOU do that?" The just gave me 'the look'.

I noticed on the web cams that it looks like much of the snow is melting. Are the mounds shrinking? May be an early mud season!

I'm not liking this at all....what a mess we're gonna have when things freeze again...not to mention the mess at the lakes

There was a woman in the Airline Restaurant who said that we shouldn't have rain after December because of the havoc it can create. Of course, another woman pointed out that had we not had that rain last week, before the last snowstorm, the snowbanks would have been terrible. Now we're forecast for rain tomorrow and "wintry mix" on Friday....great. Send SNOW!!!

Melting it is.

All this morning from about 5am, big sheets of ice have been sliding off our roof.

BOOM! CRACK! SMASH!

Our chickens are out from their chicken coop. etc

Our propane guy makes deliveries every two weeks. He was here this morning and he found that the ice had cut in twain the copper tubing that feeds the house propane.

So I must erect a shelter over our propane tanks and re-fuss with our gas lines.

sigh.

Our big icicles are gone, for now

One day I was just looking out the windows towards the barn, when I noticed the sheep bolting for cover - then I heard the rumble of snow & ice rolling off the house and barn roofs, and the world through the window was briefly white with swirling snow. There was an electric line hanging between the house and barn. When the snowcloud cleared, I had two electric lines: one hanging from the barn the other hanging from the house....falling ice clipped it right in half.

It amazes me how mushy and unstable the ground gets during mud season. I feel like the house should just sink into the ground here. The previous owners put up a "bridge" from the driveway to the door.
I need to get some rubber boots.

This heatwave is taking care of a lot of the snow on the roof, but the driveway is like a skating rink!
