A very hard storm raged last night and paths and roads were all full this morning. It has snowed most all day, too, so I did not go to saw any wood. It was comparatively warm today aside from the wind. I have commenced to bring up wood from the pile in the clearing, so as to make that in the shed hold out. The snow is so deep I cant straw it with Jim.
