Good Morning

A big Good morning to everyone. 
This one is starting out a cold 0 degrees. 
It snowed off and on most of the day yesterday and pretty well stayed in the 20's for the day.
Dave had a 4 1/2 hour meeting Saturday morning and then got home around noon. He grabbed something to eat and headed outside to plow snow for 3 hours in preparation of the new snow storms headed in this week.
Kaylee was home for the day and wasn't feeling very good but you know 2 year old's, they are still a hand full and full of energy even then lol.
Dave managed to get new straw into the coop but he had to take the grain up there via a sled this time. He didn't have time to make another runway with the tractor, he was running out of daylight and still had to get the wood rack filled on the front porch.
I have a fire going in the stove already this morning and waiting for daylight. I wont start inside chores yet so I don't wake Kathy and Kaylee.
I ran out Thursday night and took some more pictures of that odd shape of snow at the top of the drive way before it fell or in some other way got demolished. When I got outside I found we were having a ice storm. 28 degrees, raining and turning immediately to ice.

It sure is different at different angles.

Just before 9:30 I got a call from Kathy. Luckily her hone works so good up here, well at least out on the road.  Anyway she was out on the main country road and could get no further. She couldn't her her car up the last hill before the road that gets her to house house.
The farm truck was already plugged in and warming and in 4 wheel drive. I was so glad of that. We managed to get her towed home and the baby pretty much slept through it all in her car. I brought a warm sippy cup of milk just in case she had woken up. She normally wakes up when the cat stops.
Dave got home from being in town at a meeting about 15 minutes later.
I guess I need to go throw some wood in the stove. Until next time tootles.


  1. is that snow covering something? or just plain snow? so neat looking!

  2. It is just plain snow, the next day it had fallen over. Opps thick fog has just rolled in.

  3. I love the picture of that snow sculpture. I'm glad you got Kathy towed in. It could have been really bad if she had to take the baby out in that weather.

  4. Wow, I thought it was snow covering a tree!!!! Hope to see you soon.
