One More Day

As we were feeding the cattle yesterday evening the sky looked ominous.

And when we woke up this morning we saw that the predicted storm had indeed arrived and fresh snow was on the ground and in the trees.

About eight inches of new snow on the ground, which Grizzly and Molly thoroughly enjoy.

The cattle really don’t seem to concerned – as long as they get their fresh hay.

The pigs who still need names didn’t seem to mind the snow too much either – as long as they get their feed.  I think there is a theme here.  I would show you pictures of the chickens and cats in snow but they don’t go outside on days like today.

The fresh powder made some interesting patterns on our garden fence.  It kind of reminds me of lace.

It has been quite a dramatic change in the weather in the past three days.  Not really what I would have chosen, but who gets to choose the weather?  So, as I type this post with the generator humming in the background (the power is out – probably for quite a while) I think this is a perfect day to curl up in front of the wood stove with a good book.

And just enjoy it.

    Looks very cold! Bakersfield is slotted to receive some of that white stuff this weekend. I don’t believe it, but stranger things have happened.
    Is the power still out?

      Snow in Bakersfield? I don’t think so. The power was only out for four or five hours. Much better than the five days last winter!

    Qaddafi…Now that is a good name for a pig. Loves to play in poop, surrounded by other pigs, makes a lot of odd noises.

      You have something against our pig? I think that is a terrible name to associate with an innocent animal – and you’ve been watching Fox News too much again. Bacon, Pork Chop, Hambone, I could go with any of those. Maybe even Smoked Sausage. . .
