I’m way behind on posting photos!

Back at the beginning of February, I was wandering around the yard when I noticed a problem!

We live part way up a hill, on the side of a valley, and even in the winter when things “seem” frozen, water seems to seep down the hill.

I discovered that day that ice was really starting to build up in the small drainage ditch across the back of our yard, and the ATV was frozen in the growing ice! 88|

3 of the wheels were stuck in the ice!

Jeff, armed with a sledge hammer and an axe, saved the day!

(ok so 2 buckets of hot water worked a lot better than the hammer or axe)

And while I’m catching up on photos, we have a very plentiful wood supply after this mild winter. We might not have to get more than a couple cords next year!

The wood shed has worked REALLY well.  And because we don’t get much snow, no drifts formed inside so the wood is very nice and dry and we haven’t had to tarp off the front.ATV is frozen into the ice!
