The old wind fired up today – up to 45 mph blowing all day – filled up the road in no time. Linda left for town before it started and the van plowed through the drifts until about 1000 feet from home. Once again, the tractor was called into duty to pull it out. A while later, more folks got stuck, and by this time, it took a bigger tractor with a blower and another truck with a blade and about 45 minutes to get this truck out.
This shot shows the tractor trying to clear a path to the truck. We were all glad to get home and stay tucked in the house in this night that promised quick death to those who ventured outside not dressed appropriately.
