The First Snowfall

19 Nov

We had our first winter weather event overnight Monday and all the way through Wednesday morning.

Yes, that is my corn still standing and waiting to be harvested.  It’s been a rough fall for anything to get done, but it will happen and all will be good.

The goats were a bit unhappy.  It was a shock to their systems to go from record high overnight temperatures to a record low high temperature on Friday.  The old record was a high of 24° set in 1880.  Our high on Friday was only 22°.

The llamas were cranky.  Who can blame them?

Maybeline and Odie



I’m not in disagreement.  Although, I think the cold weather should help my allergies.

Except now I’m feeding more hay.  Sigh… But I’m also glad we didn’t get six feet of snow.  And it’s supposed to be a much more normal week coming up.

    I can understand their problem with the sudden change. It’s always a shock. Poor critters, I feel sorry for them.

    It seems like maybe outcome snap is about done. Those mornings with 20-22 degrees are not fun. This morning’s temp was 24 and it’s already up to about 30. It’s been hard to keep the house warm.

    Have a good day!

      I get so irritated when using a tablet that’s supposed to be smart! I just noticed that when I wrote my comment yesterday, has quite a problem. At the beginning of the second paragraph “outcome” is supposed to be OUR COLD snap!!

      By the way – how old is Victoria?

        I figured out what you were saying. Victoria and Casey are my last two 11-year-olds. They will both be 12 next summer.
