January 2011

January's weather has been "interesting" in Central Missouri.  Like the rest of the country, snow and bitterly cold temperatures.  Filling up the hay rake just wasn't getting the job done.  The critters went through a 1200# bale in less than a week.  We are thankful for the slight warm up today.  It was "0" driving to work yesterday.  Had to go the long way again as all of my back road route is snow and ice covered.  Oh well it's January..  Baby goats will be hitting the ground before we know it... First of April is just around the corner.. (Ha.. I keeping telling myself that!)

 Trance is making sure nothing "evil" has moved into her pastures.
Beka just wants a hug..

First Snow 2011

Well, we knew it would happen sooner or later... We've got snow!!!  Not a huge amount 4-5".  Just enough to really mess up the roads, followed by high winds and VERY cold temperature's.  It was 3 degrees this morning with blowing snow showers.  I normally have a 50 mile drive to work, this morning I had to take the southern route which meant 65 miles.  I love driving the rural back roads to work but...not when they are snow and ice covered..

Fire Wood

We've got a couple January Storms headed our way...  We are now stocked with firewood to help us get through the "events".
