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.


Sweet Babies

5 Apr

With the cold, I’ve had to bring Clover and her kids back into the garage.  They were happy to snuggle together to get warm.

Yesterday we had a high temperature of 35*F (1.67*C), sunny, and without wind.  It seemed wonderful even though we’re supposed to be around 58*F (14.44*C).

Maisie and boys Adonis and Apollo

The sunshine and no wind made the difference!


We have about another week before we even have an average day in the forecast.


I can hardly wait to see how happy and bouncy the kids will be!

Brigit’s Waiting Too

2 Apr

Brigit was standing in the barnyard staring longingly out to pasture waiting for warm days and sunshine.  Sadly, she’ll have a long wait as our long range forecast is predicting temperatures about fifteen to twenty degrees below our historical average every single day.


Wait.  Brigit isn’t old enough to know about warm weather and sunshine.  All she’s known in her life is this miserable cold.  She must have been waiting for her mom to come up from pasture.

Hopefully, she’ll get her mom and warm weather soon.
