YAY! Spring thaw, phase one! 55F today and we had some rain. Now the sun is appearing. Larry came down to make sure I have things in order - as well as possible. He broke up some ice and threw it down hill and I poured hot water in a spot that was impeding flow. And put extra snow in a low spot, hoping it will freeze tonight to block water coming down drive from road. Temp dropping again tonight and several cold nights ahead. I could safely go back to Dupont for a few days - to my unlimited internet --- and R! And running water!
Got a bucket of water from rain barrel! Ice/snow slid off 2/3 of east roof this am, waiting impatiently for the other end to leave; then I can turn off heat cables. The ice is overhanging about 18 inches and dripping like mad!
Larry considered clearing the studio door so I could pot but it still badly blocked and he has enough of his own to do. I can live without potting a while longer.
Not using much wood but there is room for a bit more so I can do that while it is not raining.
