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.


More Kid Pics

8 Apr

I have to say, several of this year’s kids are really photogenic.

Daisy’s doe, Juno

Joani’s girl, Persephone

Reva’s girl, Zisa

Others I need to work on.  Athena is just like her mom, Cinnamon, as a kid–never stops moving long enough for me to take a picture.


I finally caught her enjoying the sunshine!

First Birdwalk of the Season

7 Apr

I was really happy that I took my camera when the goats and I went out to pasture on Thursday because I got to see a couple of killdeer.

They are usually really hard to photograph, and these aren’t the best images, but they are the best I’ve ever gotten!
