When our daughter was here at Christmas she kept hoping it would snow, but alas she got only sunshine. NOW we have the snow she wished for – and lots of it.
Well, maybe not quite as much snow as the picture above would indicate.
Our TV and Internet connections are both satellite – we do live in the sticks you know – and they both stopped working Tuesday evening. When we went out to check the dishes we understood why.
So Rick got out the ladder and climbed up to clear them both off.
We spend a lot of our time taking care of the animals. The cattle water troughs freeze over and we have to break up the ice so they can drink.
The animals really don’t seem too concerned about the snowy weather. The younger calves are running around playing in the snow and the dogs have joined them.
Mildred decided the dead-standing tree would make a great scratching post.
Everyone needs a good scratch – even in a snow storm.
Grizzly is enjoying his romps through the snow too.
The roads and travel are terrible up and down the valley. Schools and most businesses have been closed for the past few days. So, we are staying home, taking care of our animals and glad we have a warm, cozy little house with a good woodstove.
