David Started It!

 

 

Yesterday, I was just sitting in the kitchen crocheting on my bathtub floor rug and listening to some tunes. David comes over to me saying that he has been raking the yard. He wants me to come help because the weather is nice today and we should take advantage of it. The weather is suppose to get cooler and rainy in a few more days. The temps are suppose to get back in the high thirties for highs and there are possibilities for the white fluffy stuff again. Booo!

I set aside my crocheting, put my hair up in a pony tail, and found my garden gloves. This being my first go at yardening for the year I needed to protect my hands from blisters. I also was not going to go all crazy and do a large patch of raking. I got outside and found my rake.


Then I took this photo of where David had started his patch of raking.

 

I then took this photo of were I decided to begin my patch.

I set a goal of raking from the side steps over to the well cover.

 

David took turns at raking and doing his urban prospecting.

He took this photo of me hard at work while he was resting on the side steps.

 

I finished my goal patch so I took this photo of David raking some more in his patch.

 

I finished off my outdoor time taking this photo of my completed patch.

 

Indoors the sprouts continue to push up through the soil.

These two were greeting the sun this morning.

Look! It’s A Sprout!

 

Yesterday, when I lifted the green house lid to spray down the soil.

I saw this cute little bit of green poking out.

There is another one but he doesn’t quite have his head out of the soil yet.

Digging Out After Ulmer Blew Through Part 3

 

This gallery includes photos of drifts around the vehicles and the finished side steps.

 

The Deck and Driveway

 

And that concludes my digging out after Winter Storm “Blizzard” Ulmer photo galleries.

Digging Out After Ulmer Blew Through Part 2

 

I know I said I would just add to the other post but then I got to thinking maybe no one would go back to look at the newly added photos. So I decided just to make new posts. So here is part 2 I don’t know how many parts I will make. I will just go with the flow.

The Shed Drift

 

 

My Walk Around the House

I did a walk around the house after we finished digging out the shed steps.

Here I took several photos of wind designs in the drifts.

 

I still have more photos but I think I will limit this post to just these two galleries. I will continue posting more tomorrow. See ya then! 😀

Digging Out After Ulmer Blew Through

 

I have taken over 50 photos of the digging out process. Although some are not about the digging. I took a walk around the house just to see what drifts had formed where. I took a few photos of the drifts because I like the patterns left in them by the wind. I have arranged the photos in several galleries by different themes. I may not get them all posted or captioned today. So I will be editing this post until they are posted and captioned, so you know what is going on in each photo.

 

We began the dig out early in the morning it was still cloudy and grey.

 

David made it to the ground. Doing some detailed scooping on the steps.

This next group was taken as I carefully walked over to the shed, so I could check on Milly. I used a shovel as a walking cane to get there. There wasn’t a big drift to shovel through. Earlier in the week the snow from the last to smaller snows had started melting and then froze into a nice patch of ice along the path to the shed.
