Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

February THURSDAY 23 1893

We got in another load of oat straw this morning for the horses. Fred kept on drawing wood until noon. It has been snowing since about eleven o'clock sot that out of door work has been impossible, so we have been working inside. This is the snow storm of the season I think, that is for quantity, for a least a foot has fallen already & it is not drifting.

February FRIDAY 24 1893

The snow storm of yesterday continued nearly all night, and left us fully one foot of heavy snow. Much more than we have had at any other time all winter. Fred and I worked inside this forenoon. This afternoon however we got to work in the woods again at cuting &c. Am beginning to feel as though we had enough wood cut for this winter.
