Anna's brother and site admin Joey filling in for my sister -- The blizzard of '09 has cut off power and snowed Anna in. With wood heat she'll be ok. I will try to get her on the phone for a farm update later.

Joey Thanks for the info, I have heard that the snow was slamming Va.

Knowing Mark/Anna they will survive the storm very well. Memories are made during times like this.

Oh no!
I hope that everyone weathers the storm okay.

Glad everyone is okay. Wood heat is the best. Take care.

Longtime reader, mostly a lurker... Thinking about you both--Hope that you all are doing well in all that snow!

Hope all is well! We're trying to dry out here from about two months of solid rain at record breaking amounts. My yard is a swamp.... I guess all those rain systems went your way and one became a blizzard.

Stay Warm!

Thank you all for your kind comments! Glad to bring lurkers out of the woodworks. :-)

I'm on briefly from our trailer, so figured I could comment. The phone is on (for good? I hope!) and we're running on generator power at the moment. We're having a fun adventure!
