Shots from around the place the day after the Big Storm of 2013:
Ooops this was last night, after my last trip out (obsessively) to check on the chickens AGAIN. See the light next door? Troy had just told me he would put the blade on his tractor and plow our drive... I was running in to tell Keith.
Ridiculous, isn't it? Biggify it and you will see that it's not all starlings... about half of them are red-winged blackbirds... who are as bewildered as everything else.
It IS pretty.
And we were blessed by God to get our drive plowed, as we have had to dig it out many times in past years. Abby couldn't wait to run up the drive, she can't get into the yard right now, the snow is too high.
Ranger appreciated it, too, as it is too much for his poor behind legs.
Troy's tractor would not start, but he checked with a friend who came over at 7:30 this morning and did it for 50.00, the best 50.00 we spent this month!
Dinner tonight, homemade tomato bisque and grilled cheese sandwich for Keith, bisque for me. I can't wait.
But here's someone whose take on the snow is totally different and one of delight!
Here's grandson Jace and his dog Rocky, playing in the snow yesterday! He doesn't remember snow from last year, when he was just a few months old, so this is a big adventure! It was so cute to see him in his Carhartts and his trapper cap, all bundled up, enjoying the snow!
That's it for today from Calamity Acres!
