the BLIZZARD of 2010

Many of our friends, family and customers have been wondering how we fared during our recent unprecedented snowy weather in the mid-Atlantic...

It was an exhausting week of digging, hauling water and feed through 4 foot drifts and lambing, but we survived.

I did a spectacular fall on the ice and wrenched my knee and we lost two lambs to the cold, but all in all, it could have been much worse.

Thanks to our neighbors, Loran (our farm manager) and others who helped us free our tractor, kept the roads plowed as best they could, and worked my shift at the hospital as I was trapped at home.

Well, they say a picture speaks a thousand words, so here we are!
