We got hit with a good snow storm on the homestead yesterday which dumped about 8 to 10 inches of snow on us.

I had to shovel snow through the entire front property and out to the second one in order to get my wheelbarrow through. I am hauling fire wood out of the forest on the other property to keep our tiny house warm.

Since we did not know we were going to live in the Chalet and heat with wood until November, we did not have any fire wood stocked up.

Now I have to cut fire wood every 1 to 2 days in order to keep our little home warm. Fortunately we have a very efficient wood stove and a well insulated tiny house so we are not burning too much wood

We are burning Jack Pine for heat now because that is all we have available.

I hitched a ride with a neighbor the other day to get food for the chickens and found an awesome deal at TSC. We got pine shavings for a dollar a bag and took the whole pallet full. This will supply us a couple years with bedding for the chicken coop.

We spread pine shavings on the floor of the chicken coop and then, when it is filthy, we scrape it up and put it on the compost heap. Then, when it has aged a bit, it goes on the garden as fertilizer.

Melanie and I ended up fighting in the snow outside and then brought the fight inside, leaving a trail of snow all over the place. It was a lot of fun.

We are supposed to get another 6 inches of snow overnight. This is hard on a lot of people after the nice spring thaw we had the past week. But this is life in the North woods.
