Will the snow ever stop?

Its a lot of snow this year in most of Sweden and Burträsk is no exception. Last year we had a bit over one meter of snow in the end of March, with most of it coming in March. This year we already have over 1m and its just the end of January, where will it end? I don’t really mind though, since my kind neighbor has been shoveling my yard. However, we needed to shovel the snow from the barn this weekend. SM3JLA probably shoveled about 4/5 of it though, so I don’t take any credit myself for it 🙂 I spent most of the time on the ground shoveling away snow instead while SM3JLA did the tough work.

SM2XJP took the snowmobile to try making a “road” out to the 160m vertical, but he gave up after he passed the 4-SQ because he noticed he wouldn’t make it down there. It is just cold powder snow, so he pretty much just sunk. So me and his son Tobias had to walk and make a path for him which he could drive on to avoid getting stuck anymore. So now there is at least a “road” out to the 4-SQ which one can walk on.

My GF Anna did the awful task of going out to the 4-SQ and getting rid of the snow from the guy lines. Because if you get too much snow on those, there is a risk of the tubing snapping since you will get a very high vertical load on the verticals. So she went out to all the guy lines and shook the snow off in the 1m deep snow, so it was a good workout.

People @SJ2W this weekend were, SM3JLA, SM2WMV with GF, Molly, SM2XJP, SM2XLL and Tobias (son of SM2XJP).

Here is a nice picture that SM3JLA made of one of the photos, with me (SM2WMV) up on the roof

Here are some pictures
