The snow has stopped falling. The wind has stopped blowing. And the sun has finally come out.
Actually, I took these pictures a couple of days ago. Even though I had used the tractor to clean things out the night before, I had to do a lot the next day. This is what it looked like shortly after I started.
Looking out over the field this is what you see. Pretty flat, heh?! Iowa is open country.
There are 16 tall evergreen trees on the west side of my property. Because of that barrier you get interesting drifts like this.
Here's another picture of the same drifts.
Look at the size of this drift! It is one of the biggest drifts I have ever had.
This drift is on the south side of the house. It was formed because of the wind whipping around the house. I am amazed at how drifts can form even in what appears to be the middle of no where.
Today we are supposed to get temps close to 20. Compared to the below temps of the past several days (weeks?!) this warming trend will be most welcome.
Thanks for stopping by.
