Week of 01/06/2022 Snow and Ice
Although we have not been impacted as badly in years past, let’s not forget that February and March can still bring us some surprises. NOW is the time to make sure that you check your supply and re stock anything before you run out or get stranded at home.
Here at the Snohomish and Monroe Co-Op we have sand, ice melt, and some other great items to help reduce issues caused by snow and ice. Whether it’s for Farm or Home, or Homestead be prepared to take more time doing the tasks and chores that you do. Spreading sand, Shavings or even straw can help you get around safely when you’re carrying feed, refilling water troughs and even just getting the compost out.
If you’ve got muddy walkways this time of the year, shovel out as much loose mud as possible, then dump large flake shavings into the area where you walk and try to add (dig out) a few drainage runs to pull the water away from your pathway. If you need some new boots or raingear to do the work in, come and see us, we can help you stay dry while you’re outside working.
