We got a bunch a ice last night

We were posed to get snow, then change over to freezing rain and sleet. Well we got it. But seems to me it jus rained ice on us. Everything here is coated. But the ground still being warm melts pretty good. I did get out and shovel the melted ice snow slush stuff off the back deck. Then I wondered off the porch to the summer kitchen to check on it and the snow had slid down and was hanging off the side of the kitchen roof. Pretty neat but could have broke the window if it froze solid and then fell.

Of course ya know I had to find a stick and knock the sheet of snow and ice down.

Grape vines with a layer of ice coated on them, they get pruned a lil later but before spring.

Looks like a winter wonderland. The trees are all coated with ice, we still have a good deal of snow hanging on too.

You can see how the ice is causing the cedar tree and pine trees on the side of the drive way to sag. The darker looking places in the yard are where there is just a layer of ice, the snow melted there yesterday. I don't even begin to try walkin in that stuff, pretty sure I would be on my ass quick. After the sun went down the temps went down with it, most of the stuff that was dripping off the house is now hanging in icicle form now. Rodger and Jason made it home fine. But they do say it is slick out. Guess this chic wont be out till spring at least.
OK today I was posed to make fudge and post the recipe. Yeah well ya know me, mind like a mouse trap. I didn't make fudge yet so I will have to wait to post the recipe for it. I only post recipes that I have tried and know they are good. So if you use my recipes and follow my method of madness it will be good. Not much else happening here. So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

I think I'd rather have the snow than ice. Spring isn't here, so keep inside!

Hi yall, dang I have been here on the farm for well over 2 weeks now. I am about to go stir crazy. But it is slick out there to even try to walk, so my butt stays in here. We still have a good half inch of ice hanging on everything. Where the heck is spring?
