Who knew? ICElandic sheep are not built for ice. Had the devil's own time getting them down off the hill this morning. They aren't heavy enough to break through and basically were just sliding fluffy (terrified) things. The dogs can't keep their feet under them, the ATV can't go in a straight line... even the chickens are going down! The driveway has become a river of ice, we can't even get the tractor, with chains, out of the bay because it can't get a grip. The town sanded our hill by hand. Nobody has had to do that in 100 years! But two men carried shovelfulls of sand, one at a time, up our half mile road because nothing is coming up with tires on it until there is something to grip. We did what we could ferrying sand on the ATV but it made the guys nervous to have us coming in for another load sliding sideways at their truck. How's everyone else faring? Next year we really MUST put that barrell of sand in we keep talking about!
