Winter Storm Jonas: Day 2

We survived day one of Winter Storm Jonas and day two is coming to an end.

The back door is officially blocked and we cannot open it. But we can still get out the front door (at least for now). Hubby shoveled in the front so that we can continue to get out the door. We’re still able to get to the wood pile on the front porch. The wood burning stove is keeping us nice and toasty.

The heat pump, one of our vehicles, and a pile of firewood in the yard are getting buried.

Our antique bench from Nannie Gardenhire is somewhat protected from the snow but getting buried too. During the summer, we lie in our hammock between the two trees on the right.

Hubby told the birds they better slow down on the vittles because he can’t get to their bird seed at the moment. We love our red cardinals! Too bad the screen was on the window for this photo.

Our “Farmers Fancy” barn quilt block in all of her glory!

I love looking out the window and seeing the beautiful colors on my hand-painted barn quilt.

It seemed like a good day too make my famous (annual) apple pie. I didn’t get it baked in the fall, so it was a yummy treat on a cold winter day.

Hubby kept busy dehydrating a batch of apples. We also worked on painting.

The front yard with our well house, snow-laden (non-traveled) road, and neighbor’s barns.

Photo taken from the side window of our home. Our poor neighbor was having to shovel snow and feed farm animals. I am so thankful we don’t have to deal with feeding farm animals today! The neighbor’s children were sliding from the back porch into the snow and having a grand time.
