    Wow - Tiari - thats a lotta snow.

    I remember several yrs ago NJ got a huge storm - took me over an hr just to clean off my car & get it out of my parking spot.

    We only got 6" here - thank goodness for our snow blower - a 3hr job took about an hr but the rain this morning made the roads icy.

    Thanks guys. Luckily no power failures, by some miracle. My pond is like, destroyed, it got packed in. We attempted as much rescue as we could..... but doesn't look promising. As of right now 7pm Monday, we still haven't seen a plow lol

    Why the fear for the pond? We've had ponds freeze solid for almost 2 feet and yet most fish and frogs survived.

    In total we got two feet down, with drifts to three feet plus. No major power outages, but lots of bad flickers; the first one was bad enough to cause the heaters to fail for a while, and my room got so cold my little lady fin Missy died from it ;_; We had to reset the clocks every couple of hours due to power flickers.

    My fear for the pond comes in that its not entirely all that deep, but mainly, I'm pretty sure its frozen solid all the way to the bottom. The snow displaced most of the water out, and packed it tight. We cleared some areas (around the pond de-icer) but stopped digging as we don't want to accidentally chuck the fish out with shovels full of snow. It might be fine in there, but until a thaw, we have no idea lol

    Fingers crossed for you. Hope there was enough water left at the bottom for them to survive.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    As of today, it got warmer out and some snow melted off. We've seen one fish alive and swimming, he came out of the tubes at the bottom of the pond. For the winter, we lay in sections of big PVC pipe for the fish to hide in once the pond plants fade back so they are safe. I am hoping the rest of them are hunkered down in the tubes.

    Three days of snow, and now it's pouring rain >.< More unneeded water. All the storm drains are either buried under snow and ice or backed up from all the water trying to rush in. The puddles are almost knee-deep in certain spots and require some maneuvering around. Not looking forward to all that water freezing again when the temperature drops again. The roads are going to turn into skating rinks.

    My pond is only around 3ft deep, so 3 feet of snow did a job on it. After this we realize this will never do, when the spring thaw hits we are rebuilding it to be much deeper.
