Honestly never thought we'd make it to Day 8, but here we are. Unlike yesterday, however briefly it was, we didn't quite make it up to freezing today. But, with the abundant sunshine, the snow is starting to retreat. This is the longest since we've been here (2006) that the snow has lasted from one single day of snowfall. Schools were mostly still closed, but people were getting about somewhat better for the most part. We had a busy day, what with the brand inspector, OSU and DirecTV out for various things, and everyone made it up here just fine. Jorge, I hope you remembered to unlock your hubs after you got on the pavement when you left the barn! If not, I'm sure just like last time, you probably figured it out really quickly. Those big ol' Ford SuperDuty's don't turn very well in 4WD on dry pavement.
I don't know if there will be a Day 9, but since our low this morning was supposed to be in the high 20's, which we did finally hit around 1 pm, no telling
The rainchain has shed most of its icicles
As has the water rock - might actually be able to turn it back on this weekend
The north side of the house is still all snowy....
...but large patches of lawn are peeking back thru the melting snow
