Hopefully the Last Snow

19 Apr

Yesterday was another day of rain, freezing rain and snow.  It was an all day event.

By evening, the storm was passing by.  Most of the snow was even melting.

Of course that has left us horribly muddy again.

Look at that poor baby’s legs.

Hopefully, the forecast is correct because it looks like this might be our last snow.

That would be good because we are horribly far behind in getting started with the spring planting season.

After the Storms

16 Apr

I am pretty sure it’s going to be a while before my fences get fixed.  I did shut the gate between the barnyard and pasture, so nobody can go out there.

Maybeline wasn’t too happy; although she’s obviously been eating hay.

But my fence that keeps Aurora, Lily and Vinnie out of the pasture is also smashed.  I’m pretty sure Vinnie isn’t leaving the building until it warms up (like July).

Vinnie

Lily already managed to sneak out once, but she just wanted in the barnyard.  I’m not sure she really needs to go in there.  Everyone is cranky.  I put her back where she belongs.

I am not sure if Aurora will stay put or not.

I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry, so I set a couple of T-posts and threw same panels across to make sure they stay in.  I’m not the only one dealing with the after effects of the storm.

I hope they had good insurance because I’m sure their house is a total loss.  Poor babies.

More Weather Woes

14 Apr

We had two beautiful days this week that were normal April days.  Now we’re back to crappy early March weather.  Seriously.  We’ve had wind.

I woke to find the tree that I had finally accepted was going to have to come down this summer had already come down.  The one tree managed to take out two fences.

At least it didn’t touch the road.  At least it wasn’t a tornado like they had to the southwest of me.

We’ve had rain.  I don’t know why the llamas are staying outside.  They could actually walk into the barn if they wanted to.

We’ve had hail.  Luckily it was small and not very much (Actually, it’s hail you see on the llama’s back in the image above).

We’ve had snow.  At least it’s not the blizzard warning they have to the north of me.

More snow is in the forecast for tomorrow.  For Reference 29*F = -1.67*C, and our normal for this time is 61*F = 16.1*C.

Next weekend is already looking horrible.  We really need some better weather.  Now.  Last week.  Please…

The only silver lining is that it’s starting to get a bit more green out in the Back Forty.
