Food was cooked enough that we ate fine.

Glory to God on that!!!! With everything else today we hadn't started up the wood stove...

Still no power... all the boys, now fully fed and with new gear... are making another go at bobcat retrieval...... to get it out before the weather goes colder and freezes it in place...

Ok... youngest is back in the house to start the fire....

Everyone else is outside.....

Power still off....

And this photo of when I drove home looks nowhere close to as cool as it actually was.

Just pray that we don't bust anything too expensive.

Still no power... but I found a power box to charge the phone.

AND (happy drum roll please) a friend stopped by to help..

FIRST they drug/pushed a huge truck that had stuck itself at the base of our driveway :th I mean REALLY NOW!! Why?

Then the boys and friend DID manage to get the bobcat out!!!!!

No more road work tonight.

Friend went home, boys got Yukon and bobcat home.

DONE!

I don't want him in the house 6 weeks.
Yeah that morning crowing before you are ready to wake up could get old ;)

Just started cooking... and now there isn't any power.
It just gets worse and worse!!!!! Time for you and yours to get a BIG break (from the snow, not in your bones).

Glad the machinery has been retrieved so you can get back to moving the snow.

He hasn't crowed... :idunno

But the smell.... I would like to pass on the smell.

So... turns out in the excitement we didn't turn the stove top off.....

And power didn't come back until we were all in bed.

Luckily eldest got up in the middle of the night, not too much later... and turned the stove off


Pot is a little worse for wear, but it is our "bad" pot.. so not an issue.
