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.

The Wind Blows

7 Apr

Last Friday, we had a beautiful evening.  The sunset was spectacular.

It’s been windy since then.  It’s blown from the north and the south.  It’s been a hot wind and a cold wind.  It’s been dry and it’s been rainy.  Throughout it all, it’s been windy.  It was so windy  that it blew my fence down between the west side of the barnyard where the main goat herd was and the front pasture where my new moms were.

That means everyone is back together.  I had planned on waiting another week so the kids were a little bigger, but I guess it’s okay.

Some have made it out to the Back Forty, and they have made it back.

I will say, Llenny was a bit confused though.  He didn’t seem to know why on earth his herd was on the other side of the fence.

Poor llama.  He has is all figured out now though.

I do hope you’ll come back for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  The items for our hunt is on the top of my side bar.

Today, I’m sharing with Good Fences, Skywatch Friday, and SOOC Sunday (all images).

A Windy Day

27 Mar

We’ve had some pretty wild winds lately.  My beautiful magnolia tree is losing petals all over the place.

It’s not near as pretty anymore.

The wind has even whipped some whole flowers off and sent them tumbling across the yard.

I hope the winds die down a bit.
