Got up this morning to Winter Wonderland. Showered and went out to do chores while Keith cleaned up, and tramped through our first real snow of the year. It's six hours later, and STILL SNOWING.
Some of you on the east coast are probably laughing, as you have had it for months already.
I drove all the way to work, and had to turn around and come home. For once, I did not call our "emergency snow line" because in five years they have never closed. Today, they closed. Had to turn around and drive 25 miles back on bad roads. Learned my lesson!
Here are some scenes from Calamity Acres today:
That's our neighbor's yard light up on the hill opposite us... in the gloom. Thank heavens Keith decided to put the four foot extension on the little barn, because it is keeping the llamas snug as bugs in a rug.
This was very early, before the bulk of the snow had come down. The little wildings are eating at the feeding station. We are keeping them well-supplied.
When there is this much snow, we don't let the littlest birds out
But the little bunch is warm and toasty with a heat lamp in their henhouse
When I got home from my trip to work, I heard geese above me. As the cloud cover is so low today, I could not see them (and oh, how I love them!)... but then, finally, from out of the clouds, this small flock flew close enough to almost touch!
The dogs have just barked, and I looked out to see the Fed Ex truck at the gate. Our vegetable seeds have come from Burpee, so in a few minutes I'll go out to get them and SUMMER WILL BE IN MY HANDS!
STAY WARM, EVERYONE!
