The farm's survived the wild and snowy night. By mid morning today we had patches of blue sky and everyone came outside to stand in the sun. But warmth - not so much. That didn't stop me from taking a break mid chores to show the sheep how to make snow angels They were absolutely mystified, especially Sol, the llama - who doesn't approve of any changes in routine.
For a brutally windy night, the snow accumulation here wasn't nearly as much as we had expected - maybe a foot. It's hard to say, since we have so much drifting. We had stocked all the barns last night with extra hay and water, anticipating that it might be hard to get to the farm today. But it wasn't bad. Once the driveway was cleared, it was smooth sailing down to the barns. They hade been plowed out by the time we got there.
I'm heading back down now for evening chores. Will button up the buildings for the night and toss some corn to the sheep for calories.
Hope you're weathering this bout of winter in safety and warmth.
