Hopefully the Last Cold Snap

3 Mar

We have once again had our temperatures plunge.

It made my task of preparing for spring break kidding next week a bit more of a challenge.  I had many of my gates frozen down.

I do think I manage to get things as ready as I can.

Now it’s just a matter of coping and waiting and getting through.

I Miss My Bird Feeders

12 Feb

I really do miss feeding the birds and seeing all the different ones I can attract.  That would be Sky’s fault since he thinks feeders are really just bait for him to catch the birds.

They’ll have to just live out in the barn.

Maybe some day the dog will grow up and I can have my feeders in the yard again.  Yeah, right…

A Wintery Blast

25 Feb

Thursday evening saw rain and thunderstorms overnight.  By Friday afternoon, it had turned colder and was snowing by the time I got home.  Ironically, I saw my first robin of the year.

I tried to take a couple of pictures of the trees glistening in the morning sun, but I didn’t feel like walking in the brutal wind to get a good shot, so I am stuck with this one little frozen drop.

I did also find a few icicles on the fence (Blaze behind).

Sky wasn’t too sure about coming out with me.

Bob was sitting in a corner out of the wind and enjoying the sun.

Hercules also found a nice spot to bask in the sun with the door shielding him from the wind.

This sudden change was quite a shock to our systems.
