Iced In

Snowfall crystallized last night and a hard two inch layer of icy snow appeared everywhere this morning.  Plowing through the dual layer of ice an powder was a difficult task for the John Deere riding mower with snow blade attached. 

This winter has broken all the records and continues to deliver more.  Even this evening a gentle fall of white flakes adds a new powder on top of the frozen tundra..  The dog tracks are not even visible across the yard. 

Propane costs have nearly doubled ($3.15/gal from $1.80/gal) and our provider is rationing (filled our tank up to 60%).  The is a shortage of propane in the Midwest and it's reported that if the polar vortex continues that supplies could run out in mid-February.
