Schmidt Homestead

Our new home in Woodburn, IL

Thursday, February 15, 2007

We had a HUGE storm come thru Tuesday. In St. Louis, we probably had an inch of sleet when it finally turned to snow. It was just barely snowing when I went out around 4 pm to shovel the sidewalk. We had maybe 3”, but it was windy, so the snow was drifting to about 5-6”. By the time I finished shoveling, some of the areas had already been covered back up.

I finally made it back to Bunker Hill this morning. The roads were fine on the way here. At lunch I went out to the property, and that road was a different story. There were a number of areas that were still covered in packed snow. At the property I didn’t attempt to drive up the driveway. I parked just past the mailbox and walked up to the house to make sure everything was ok. It was fine, of course.

We finally got the contract revised for the trailer, and I took it to the bank. We had hoped to get the trailer delivered this week, but it doesn’t look like that’ll happen. We couldn’t get in touch with anybody at the trailer place until today. We’re pretty sure they were closed, because I heard on the news that Springfield got 15” of snow!

It was 9 degrees when I left home this morning. It’s currently 12.
