The Second Half of Winter

11 Feb

We made it through the first half of a rough winter.  It was mostly bitter cold, and that trend of below average temperatures is continuing.

Now we’ve also added some snow.  We’ve had several rounds of snow in the last week.

It’s beautiful.

Nobody wants to go out to pasture.  They are more into standing around

or hanging out in the barn.

It certainly isn’t helping with my need to go through less hay though.

It also makes it more challenging to do chores.

I actually had to dig out my snow shovel.

Sky was very helpful with that.

    You have my sympathy! I got a chuckle out of Sky. He looked very interested.

    Oh Sky Love that picture…you can definitely see the puppy in his stance over the shovel. Ready…set…pounce! 🙂
    It’s interesting…that chart, although the temps are below normal, how they’re following almost the same exact up and down trend over the winter!

      Never mind the “chart comment”! Silly me, I looked at it too quickly and misread it! 😉

    I enjoy your blog so much. Im freezing just reading it though lol. I’m happy to know you have your water back. I can’t even imagine hauling buckets in the cold after a day of work. But we do what we have to do dont we. I’m in Louisiana and even we had a very cold winter this year…even snowed twice!! It’s Mardi Grad time,and everyone is battling the rain. Have a great week!!
