Our First Real Snow of the Year

11 Dec

Friday morning dawned beautiful with a pink sunrise.  (This is the view out of my classroom window–the gym is called the “Round House”)

By the time I got home, the rain had arrived.  The goats were trying for a last little bit of eating, but there was a drizzle and fog setting in.

Overnight it changed into snow.

Why, yes, it is still pitch black out when I go out to milk right now.

Zinnia headed back to the barn after getting milked.

By the time daylight broke, the clouds were gone and the sun was shining.

There was a quick bit of ice as it changed from rain to snow.

It’s hard to see the sparkle of the ice in the tree tops.

The llamas were first to venture out to pasture.

It didn’t take long for the goats to come out too.

I am so grateful the storm we had was just a mild snow.  My heart goes out to those who suffered such devastation from this system.

    Tornadoes are so horrific.

    I’m thankful, too, that your snow was minimal, and not a huge storm like there has been in some areas of the country.

    It’s interesting that the goats don’t mind the snow. That reminds me of one of our dogs. She hated the rain, but loved to go out and play in the snow. She would bury her nose in the white stuff, and run all over. It was so funny!
