It continues to snow.
Farmer Chip continues to shovel off the hay and roll those monster bales to the herd without a tractor or a barn to shelter cows or hay.

There have been many barn collapses in Vermont, trapping many cows, and some employees, under roofs and snow.
These are just a few of the many :
2 barns in Putney, Vermont - 12 calves killed
1 Barn in Londonderry, Vermont - 2 cows killed/ 36 shipped because there was no where to house them.
1 barn in Chester, Vermont - 4 cows killed
Red Cross Volunteers deployed to barn collapse
1 barn Essex, Vermont
Bath NH- good photos, sad story
New York, NH & Maine barns:
Please continue prayers for the livestock that inhabit snowlaiden barns, the farmers who care for them and the emergency responders who rescue them.
