Talked with my DD yesterday and she and her DH were doing well even though they were snowed in. They found out that the insurance will most likely cover the cost of replacing their barn (collapsed under 34" of snow). So the arguements with the insurance company will begin.
They attempted to shovel out but their driveway is way too long and the snow too deep. So they jumped on their ponies bareback (warmer that way) and headed out in search of a farmer with a tractor and front-end loader. The farmer who dug them out last time would have been happy to clear their driveway again ...e except that his tractor was broken. So more wondering and riding down the ro rural roads they live on. They found another farmer who was willing to come and help out. Who could say no to such a cute pair riding up on their ponies anyway. LOL So hopefully that happened today. They plan on parking their Jeep at the end of the driveway this time.... just like their old foggie parents (in law) do. LOL
Just in time to get ready for the next round of snow. I am happy that they are not in the 34" prediction area this time... more like 8-12". So I will be hoping and praying that he rest of the barn holds up to the added weight. Who knows with the 40 mph winds also predicted, maybe the snow will blow off in some areas.
As for me, we are prepared as much as possible for whatever comes our way. Had PT on my shoulder today and DH is feeling better (cold).
Thanks it from Snowmageden.
