The view from our garage
Kennels are not accessible as the snow is up to the roof and blocks the doors.
Update: Friday 9:00PM
We are doing well thanks to Jay Becker, who plowed us out. It took him two hours to do our driveway, but he succeeded, and we were able to get to the post office. We were snow bound for two days, and book orders have built up. As it turned out we don't have a mailbox any more. A snow plow that worked Helderberg Trail must have taken it down and pulled it away. Jim O'Shea, our postmaster, said that there are quite a few people in Berne in the similar situation. By the way, old timers living in Berne say that they have not seen that much snow since 70s.
This came from Teddy Moritz (thank you!):
A falconer in Ohio, Mick Brown, got cabin fever when his area received three feet of snow. Mick has recently begun using a miniature longhaired dachshund for rabbits and is very pleased with her. The deep snow prevented him from running the dog so he went to Cabela's and got snowshoes.
Here are some photos of Mick's recent hawking success. He uses a male Harris Hawk over the dachshund, Tippy. He carries the dog, drops her under the snow covered Christmas trees and she runs the rabbits out. He also snowshoes to thick briar patches and puts Tippy in. The rabbits soon come out.
The hawk is in the white metal box.
