March 3, 2007 – Still Waiting

The high winds continue, rather unexpectedly today, although the sun is out. Yesterday, two out of four vehicles made it by our place. Making it through was a power company truck with a trailer of new power poles, and a 4-wheel drive pickup truck with chains, that, as it crashed through the drift, became airborne and made it through. Just like one of those “tough truck” commercials.

Of course, the squad car and this minivan didn’t have as good a time.


Good neighbor Don came over with his tractor to clear the road and pull him out.
The drift in the driveway continues to grow.


The plow went by this morning and made a path.


It only took a little bit of digging to get the mailbox open.

One thought on “March 3, 2007 – Still Waiting

  1. This is a fascinating site. I am out in Western Iowa, and taking care of my grandmother’s farm. I was wondering, did you have any structural problems with the old corn cribs? Am having a hard time trying to figure out what to use them for, other than a makeshift garage, but want to save the two that are on the property. Both are still standing, and still have a roof attached, but very holey. Just curious what has worked well and what problems you have run into. Thanks for any info you can give me.
