We got sleet / rain / ice pellets yesterday morning starting around 9 am. It finally let up. When it turned to snow. There is now at least 7" of snow on top of the car. Which is probably stuck to the ground for at least a week as the highest temperature in the near future is a balmy 32 degrees.....on Thursday. And by the looks of the radar, I don't see the snow letting up for at least another three hours.
|At least someone is enjoying all the snow!|
The wood stove is eating up the logs, and we're still in the 20's outside. It's supposed to get down to Zero tonight so I'm going to be through the logs on the front porch before long and have to dig into the pallet of logs I brought up on Wednesday.
I've been shoveling the snow. Not for us, mind you. But for the goats and chickens. Because you know, snow is evil. Goats hate ANY type of moisture coming from the sky. And the chickens refuse to walk through the snow to even get to their water & food hut. So what does a farmgal do? She shovels a path for the chickens, of course!
|Hey, how about some hot tea over here?!|
Well, I'm off to check on the critters. Again, again. Then I think I'll come in, have some hot tea & watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Rhiannon.
