First Snow

This morning, we were lucky. We just had a dusting of snow. Other areas north of us had 3-6” of snow.

And, of course, I procrastinated. Hoses aren’t drained. Water heaters aren’t in the water tanks. And my stud needs moved closer to the barn.

Next weekend is a better weekend to do all of this. I’ll have extra helpers! Micah will have time to help me set up water heaters, for both the dogs and the horses. Jacob can help move the round pen. Hopefully, Tom can be home to help.

I am not looking forward to winter.

We didn't get any snow. The kids said there were some flurries after I went to bed, but nothing stuck. They hate snow as much as I do so was relieved to see nothing there that morning.

I hope this years winter is kind to y'all up that direction. Sounds like ours will be maybe warmer than normal. So far, it is slow to arrive. 60's today, but did drop to freezing last night. Hank is super slow to grow much winter coat this year too.

It was stranged who got the snow and who didn't. I know we got more rain, at least 2". You can see water laying in the pic. Yes, I'm thinking we are all hoping for a kinder winter! and today, the sun is shining!
