We're expecting a lot of snow and high winds here in western Massachusetts tonight. I have brought in several loads of wood for our furnace and woodstove. We've got food and we're ready if the lights go out. Let's hope they don't but you never know. Most activities around here have been cancelled. I was out on the road earlier today and it seemed like everyone was home. Many businesses were already closed - even though the snow didn't start here until late afternoon.
We just came back from the sheep barns which are 5 miles from our farmhouse. Nessie put all the ewes and lambs in for the night and The Farmer and I fed the bottle lambs.
The Governor has closed all the roads and says only essential vehicles can be on the road. Wondering if going to feed sheep and lambs makes our truck an essential vehicle?
The yearling ewes are out in pastures without sheds and they will just stay still and wait the storm out. We'll make a trail tomorrow so they can get to their hay.
Winston has a bed in a shed but he will probably be up all night barking at whatever lurks in the wild.
I will be happy when it is over and the sun comes back out. I'll try to pop back in sometime with snow photos. In the meantime, if you are looking for some color this weekend, check out the post over on the Classic Elite Yarns blog. If you are where it is storming, this is a great opportunity to do some colorful knitting. Stay warm everyone!
