More Snow Shots

13 Feb

After hardly an snow for the last couple of years, it’s kind of nice to see some out there.


Sky thinks it’s a lot of fun.  It certainly makes his Jolly Ball easy to find.

Our skies have not been very sunny though.  I do miss sunshine.  It’s almost like it’s being held prisoner to Old Man Winter.


Lovely weeds beneath the snow.

This boy!  He is a maniac.

I do like the dramatic look. 

But I am starting to really look forward to spring.  Even though that will mean more mud again.

The Second Half of Winter

11 Feb

We made it through the first half of a rough winter.  It was mostly bitter cold, and that trend of below average temperatures is continuing.

Now we’ve also added some snow.  We’ve had several rounds of snow in the last week.

It’s beautiful.

Nobody wants to go out to pasture.  They are more into standing around

or hanging out in the barn.

It certainly isn’t helping with my need to go through less hay though.

It also makes it more challenging to do chores.

I actually had to dig out my snow shovel.

Sky was very helpful with that.

The Well Guys Were Here

7 Feb

What was Noelle watching out the window?

The well guys were here!

They pulled the pipes and wires and pump and replaced everything.

I felt horrible watching them work out in the cold.

When they finished, we put the board back on and stapled the tarp down again.

Then I started the heater.  It took it a while to warm up.  There was still snow on the floor when the air temperature half way up was at 45*F.

It takes even longer for the water lines to thaw out.  It might be a couple of days before they are thawed again.  We didn’t put the fuse in that powers the pump, since there’s no point in filling the tank to freeze.

Unfortunately, one of the water valves broke, but I guess you just keep working and repairing things until it’s functional again.  But we’re one step closer to having things working again!
