Snowstorm and power loss

We've been getting snow the last few days. Colorado has crazy weather can have sunny 70 degree weather one day and snow the next :) Nice thing about it is that the snow doesn't stay around long-usually just a few days. It started snowing and blowing on Wednesday we got around 8 inches, but with the blowing we get 4 and 5 foot drifts, which wouldn't be so bad, but we have 20+ horses. While some horses have big round bales out there 9 have to be fed daily, and they are all spread out in different pens :)
Now I am only 5'2" (on a good day) so climbing through the drifts to feed these horses can wear me out! LOL and to think some people have to go to the gym to work out.
So I got them fed, but we have a wood stove and of course we weren't prepared, so there I am digging out wood from under a nice large drift to put on my sled and pull back up to the house. I have an Alaskan Malamute and a German Shepard and they are just cocking their heads to the side, looking at me like "what are you doing?" Need to turn those 2 into sled dogs!
I get a nice fire going and just in time---the power goes out! What a day! and do you think our Y2K generator is hooked up? Wish I had pictures. What a riot!
