We have been pounded with about a foot of snow. We weren't ready. We never are. Winter comes quickly. One day, it is beautiful and warm and then next it is coming down hard. Last night after driving five hours to get home from my mom's to escape the storm, The Farmer and I drove around in the dark picking up piles of electronet fence from fields all over town. Some of it is still in piles under the snow and will probably be there until spring unless there is a good thaw.
I went out in the height of the storm today to take some photos of the sheep. Such a beautiful sight. So gray and white and cold and raw. The sheep have hay to eat and stand around and eat while the snow is coming down. They hunker down and sleep in one place, standing up and shaking the snow off them. Most of the sheep in these photos are last year's lambs. We are expecting lambs any day now but we're hoping that they hold off until this storm goes away.
