Snow Shoveling



Just for fun! My friend was able to swing by and snap some photos of my shoveling. Something that is pretty hard to photograph by myself. So here you go. Again, this may give you a sense of scale on just how deep the snow is around my house. Nothing new has fallen for a few days, and it's been clear and crisp. -20's F. every night and right around zero for a high kind of crisp. The break is nice to be able to catch up on cleaning up from the last several storms though!

  4. Wonderful blog and videos. Did you put a skirting around your home to keep out the cold air? Keep up the great work.

    1. Yes. It's made out of snow. And it's worked great every winter so far. ;)

    2. Very interesting. I have a friend who just finished building her tiny home and moved it to Minnesota. They might have enough snow to do that. Are you worried about the snow being against your siding all the time? Or do you think the sealer/stain you put on will protect it? Do you ever have times (spring/fall) when it is cold and you don't have enough snow to have a skirt? Is the floor really cold then. I know Tumbleweeds insulates the floor but wonder if that is enough if the wind is blowing cold air all around. Thanks for your thoughts on this. Mark

    3. I'm not worried as any melting water can drain away easily and we have a generally dry climate. Generally when it's cold, we do have a lot of snow. But the floor is very well insulated anyway so I have had no issues.

  5. Hola vivo en Argentina en una pequeña casa con mi esposo e hijos de 24, 20 y 15 años. Mi hija de 24 se fue a vivir con mi mamá ( ella no soporta vivir en una pequeña casa) Nosotros no podemos afrontar los gastos de una casa más grande, aquí en la ciudad que vivo ahora estamos en verano. Los inviernos son fríos de una semana a un mes a entre 5 y-5 Centígrados casi nunca nieva, nuestro clima es muy húmedo, del 60 al 100 % a veces incluso tuvimos un invierno con 30 Centígrados, super loco y en el sur de nuestro país sabemos que sufren inviernos como los tuyos pero son difíciles de asumir para nosotros, no estamos acostumbrados, incluso es difícil vivir con esta humedad, soñamos con mudarnos a zonas de nuestro país con menos de 30% de humedad, quizas cuando mi esposo se jubile en unos años si Dios permite.
