A February Thaw

6 Feb

Our cold snap ended overnight Friday.  It was one of those weird situations when it warmed up overnight.

It was still chilly to start the day, but the goats must have sensed that it was going to be warm because, bright and early, they headed out to pasture.

I don’t know why because it was still covered in snow and a bit of a breeze with a bite to it.  But it was a southern breeze.

They were quick to come back to the barnyard and have leftovers for breakfast (Popcorn and Tansy)

By afternoon we were in the forties, and every day this week is supposed to be warm enough to keep things melting.  The next morning, I woke to the “Quickening Moon” setting over the barn.

It wasn’t long until the goats went back out to pasture for a few minutes.

It’s already easy to see how much it melted in just that one day.  We should be almost snowless by the end of the week.

    We’re having warmer weather, too. We even got a bit of rain today. And it’s still 47 degrees now, at about 10:15 p.m.
