Fri.: Lubed GMC temps were around +10 degrees, that night temps dropped to near zero with heavy snow from the NE. Sat. +4 degrees, 8” of powder with drifted snow. Checked stock water, trough was dry, water spigot was frozen. Gate to water trough was frozen in place so stock was milling around tank. Used pick axe to free gate. Gathered Emergency Back-Up 5 Gallon Water Cans and carried them through drifted snow to Emergency Back-Up Water Spigot. Caps to jugs were frozen tight. Fought way through drifts to Emergency Back-Up Pipe Wrench. Filled 5 Gallon Cans. emptied out junk from back of Dodge and drove to trough, could not get nearer than 60 feet to trough due to stock trailer. Carried cans through drifted snow to trough. Decided to relocate stock trailer. Backed Dodge under stock trailer (through drifted snow), trailer tires were frozen to ground but after several attempts were pulled free thanks to Locker rear diff in Dodge. Was able to back Dodge to trough and filled it after several trips. Water that splashed on clothes, gloves and water cans froze solid. Cleared snow from mailbox, 3 decks and front of barn. I hang clothes in shower and water cans in bath so that they melt/dry/don’t freeze again. Sunday AM, temps are in the teens, snow has drifted against the house, there is 12” in the back of the Dodge and 20” in the back of the GMC, snow has drifted into the cabs of both trucks. All of yesterdays snow drifts have reappeared. On returning from my 1st trip to the water trough (empty again) the Dodge mysteriously stops running but mysteriously re-starts after gasoline is added to the fuel tank. By 11AM temps have risen to +20, the powder snow has begun to absorb moisture from air, compresses under the weight and is becoming more difficult to drive through. I make last trip to water trough then use both trucks to pack down snow to county road by noon. For some reason my back is sore.
