Weather Changes

25 Feb

After our snow on Sunday, we had a pleasant change in the weather.  It was back to normal and above normal.

The sun is shining and the snow is melting!

Goats and geese

That means mud and slush!

It’s getting a bit difficult to find dry places to put the hay out for everyone to eat.

I also took advantage of the warm weather to kick out everyone who had been shut in the greenhouse and garage.  I’m also not letting anyone into the milk room for extra food because I was starting to have major difficulties with ten or so goats thinking they should get to come in.

Popcorn, Tansy, Cinnamon and Cupid (just a fraction of the ones who show up part of the time)

It was chaos.  Anyhow, I removed Blaze and 2TC from the garage and moved them up north.

I still have Victoria and her girls up there too.

Because the melting happened so fast, I’m still having door issues.  You might remember I had snow and ice and I could hardly get my doors to the hay and birds open.  There’s still enough of an ice pack that I still can barely get the doors open.

After melting, but still I can only get it open that little bit because of the ice.

I do try to make sure to open the birds’ door every day even if they aren’t going out very much.  Otherwise, it’s pretty dark in there.

I might have even had a bit of an accident trying to open the birds’ door Monday morning after Sunday’s snow. It might have ended up with me having a black eye.

Eye bruise (and I cut the thumb the night before trying to wash the food processor)

Seriously, I think I’ve shared more selfies of me hurting myself than about any other type of selfie.  That’s probably not a good thing. LOL

After a couple of days it was really purple

The snow has begun melting, and I managed to get my door closed again, but I’m a bit concerned about overnight refreezes that will prevent me from opening it in the mornings before I go to work.  I certainly want to avoid more black eyes.

It looks like the melting is going to continue though, so we might even end up with a lake in the birds’ pen.  I guess we’ll just deal with the mud and enjoy the warmth!

    Oh, my, a blackeye. So easy to do when working with the after effects of storms. Do take care!

    Oops! I guess I missed this one, when it came in! That’s quite the black eye you gave yourself! No more of that, now!! That’s not a good thing! I hope it’s looking better by now!
