Let It Snow!

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.

    ok, so how much snow did you get? We’re still waiting for some rain.

    Sure glad we didn’t get that much snow down here! Yesterday we had 4-5 inches of snow, and today nothing. The rain gauge says 3 inches…. overnight. Kinda crazy for this California boy.

      It’s probably a good thing you “city slickers” didn’t get as much snow as we did. Can you imagine the traffic mess if you did!

    I could not believe that practically the whole town shut down… For 4 inches of snow? Crazy. I went to my PST last Thursday and I counted 7 vehicles that were being towed out of the snow banks. One was a Como 4 news van. Bet you didn’t see that on the news. Some peoples kids…

      It is amazing the way people drive in the weather. Reminds me of our trip to California down I-5 a couple of years ago – wrecks and spinouts everywhere. I’m glad we stayed home through the icy, snowy weather!
