Weather Smackdown!

Winter arrived on Friday with a (no exaggeration) blizzard.  I left work early and had (I think - poor memory you know) the worst drive home ever.  Heavy, wet driving snow and blowing hard.  It was so good to get home - and at least I made it home.  Son Kurt ended up in a motel that night.

This post is mainly going to be some winter photos from around the place taken yesterday and today,

The view from the milking stand has changed dramatically.

The garden - not put to bed properly but so be it - is really beautiful with a coating of white.

As you can see in the pictures, it was pretty cloudy and darkish on Saturday - but the sun did come out now and then for a few peeks.
The pigs are fine -they are quite hardy creatures really - and are content with a roof overhead and a pile of hay to burrow into.

Some folks might say that I spoil my chickens - maybe, but they do appreciate their insulated coop and some hay outside so they can go outside don't have to walk the snow.

The goats mainly stay indoors but venture out for short outings.  Ranger took advantage of the snow-laden pine boughs that were low enough for him reach.

So, Thanksgiving this week already and we all have much to be thankful for.  For me, first and foremost my family, then good health, my animals, and whoever invented four wheel drive.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone - BE WELL
