Thanks much for the video update. I was watching the Weather Channel this morning and wondered how you and Cold Antler Farm were holding up. What a great view on the video - really enjoyed it.

Cheers~ Conny in N. Calif.

I've spent time digging out farm animals in snow so I know the hard work you are doing today, but doesn't your farm look beautiful! I love that your modern day knight came by with the snow plow as you were filming. Stay warm!

That was a cool video of the plow truck. Since the schools are closed, I don't know if our town roads are plowed well or not. I do know from being at Dad's that you New Yorkers get plowed after the first inch or two.
Your roofs should be ok with a snow load. The metal will cause the snow to melt faster than if they were asphalt and the angle will encourage run off either from sliding snow or melt.
My chickens are bored in their house today so I put some hay and oyster shell in for them to scratch and peck.

Great video. I'm amazed at how much snow the east coast keeps getting blasted with. I grew up in Minnesota, and your town reminds me of Mn. I hope the sheep are doing well!

I love your videos that make it seem like we are sharing life on your farm. Thanks for making it seem so real.

Just beautiful! I know for you all living in it it's a mess, but I admit that I have more than a little envy for the winter extremes, the beautiful snow, and the reasons to stay home and enjoy it. Thanks for the video!

14 inches here in northern Vermont and coming down still.
Roads are bad--no plow truck up here yet. Soon. Your video is great.
Lost my 4 wheel drive last month and have risked life and limb to go water the cattle 2x/day.
Today the cows are white, the fences are looking shorter and the birds are camped at at the feeders.

Jenna- do you have remote work capabilities on your home computer?

Maybe making it so you could work from home would be cheaper for now until you can get a new 4X4. Would your work let you do that?

Paula, I spoke to work about that a while ago and it isn't an option. I'll be back in the office tomorrow, the storm should be over tonight. I'll take it slow.

I know its a mess to live in but I am very jealous of the snow on your farm. Here in Seattle there was 3 inches at midnight last night but most of it was gone by morning. Due to what? RAIN.

I would love to trade a white winter in for my wet one.

Hang in there Jenna - snow just stopped in CT, our little town of Mystic got close to foot 1/2 - which for coastal CT is TONS. Took 2 hours to dig out driveway and find my car. Good luck and I'll be sending you miracle 4x4 prayers!!

Having lived some years in the Poconos, I remember how much of a mess the white stuff is, but isn't it pretty? I really miss snow. It's just cold and brown here. :(

it started around midnight Tuesday and when I went to bed WEdnesday night at 10, it was still snowing... ended up with at least 18 inches. It was scary. Between the car on the way out, and the storm coming in, the stresses of the animals, the work drama... I'm just happy that today will be slightly back to normal.

Jenna, thank you for sharing your life with us. Here in Fairmont, WV we have about 5 1/2 inches and it is still snowing. I can only imagine what you must be going through when I have to drudge through the snow to go see about Jasper when he is outside during the day. I live up a road and have a 70 foot drop on the other side of our road. Fun in the winter. But, we have to take the good with the not so good living out in the country and count our blessings that we do NOT live in the city.
