Week 48

Well I couldn't get Blog to work yesterday so back to posting this on Thursday this week.

We had all different weather yesterday. 
Rain, sleet, snow, a few minutes of sun and of course high winds gusting to around 55 MPH. 
A lot of the snow has melted off with this warm front and we are down to our ice layer in many places. Makes it real fun going up and coming down from the chicken coop.

Another cold front hits this weekend with intermittent days of snow.

Dave said our road had a tree down all most all the way across the road when he went to work yesterday, but he managed to get around it on the side.

Still working on quilts this week.

We enjoy these.
