Each year some five pairs of geese visit the Sniffin yard in April where they fight with each other for places to lay eggs.
The winning pair found a site on an island in a pond, which should have been perfect.
Then about 16 inches of wet snow fell over a week’s time and the goose continued to be buried by the snowfall.
This photo shows her sticking her head up through the snowbank as she faithfully sits on her eggs. Yes, this Mother Goose is one heckuva a mother. She deserves applause.
