Our January Snow Storm

Well, the weather guy was saying that a snow storm was going to hit during the night of Friday, but it actually came during the day on Saturday and then all night long - last night... This morning I woke up at 5:45 as a neighbour going to the Airport called to let us know that an Ambulance was stuck in the coulee and a tow truck was coming but we might have to get our tractor out and help... I have never heard of this happening before, and I lived here my whole life - well since I was 5 years old so that is pretty much my whole life.
The wind blew all night long, and this morning my front door was snowed in for about 1 and 1/2 feet, the dogs did not even want to go out the door... The last time I saw it like this it was in 86 and that was May, the only thing that me and my hubby were very thankful for was that the power stayed on all night long so we did not lose our heat!!!
Well this is our Cows all snowed in....
My Shed - how I measure my snow.....
Well it is still blowing and my Hubby has gone out to pull one neighbour out and then there is an other neighbour in the ditch that his son is going to pull him out, so today until the wind stops it might just be a pulling out they neighbour day....

This morning my sister called me, she is going on a holiday today - Cancun - and I was thinking about her yesterday and wondering if she would make it to the Airport for the flight... Well they stayed in the city at the Airport Hotel just so they did not miss the flight, so she called just to let me know that they were on the plane and leaving shortly, but the Edmonton plane is late so they are waiting for that.

I would also like to welcome my newest neighbour - a little boy weighing in at 7lbs and 7 oz last night at about 8:30 - no name as yet as there were really thinking that it was going to be a girl.... Well I just want to Welcome him to the neighbourhood.



Wow... they look cold.
