Snow, snow, snow

What a difference a few hundred feet in altitude can make! Remember that snow we got a while back? Well, it hasn't melted and it doesn't look like it will any time soon. A mile down the road there is no snow at all, but us? Completely socked in.

I've got to deliver the next beam to Jacob, the Portland apprentice, this weekend. This has meant two days of grueling snow removal. It's grueling because there was a point when the weather became warm. The snow started to melt, and then refroze. So now it's heavy and frozen solid. The section pictured above took about three hours to clear.

'Here's the rest of the upper portion of the driveway, another 3 or four hours.

And here's today's project: removing 200-300 pounds of ice from the roof of the van.
