Ohhh yes count your blessings.:D:D:D:D:D

Round 2 is going on now and its snowing to beat the band:(:mad:.
It is a bit colder so it probably should be a bit lighter and less cement like compared to yesterday.
Its supposed to stop around dawnish which is when I go out.
The gates and wheel barrel path will all have to be dug out again sigh :(:(:(:(:mad::mad::mad:
Its going to be continued windy
But I will be happy if i can get some
Fun play again.

ITS STILL HEAVY SNOW UGH.
BUT shoveling the gates was easier and most of the kids want to be outisde
they all HAVE inside and outside options..
But the horses went back out and only 3 of the goats have chosen to stay in..
It really did not feel that bad out there. BUT IT WOULD BE NICE IF IT

On an island
Oh my - haven't seen anything like that since I lived in the Scottish highlands!
We used to live in the North West of England, lol we had two winters on the trot like that and it almost finished us off with horse keeping! Nightmare, nothing and nobody is geared to that level. We had drifts which meant you couldn't see the road, not even the farmer got through to us. Quite scary and I got cabin fever. Good job we had enough food for the horses. Farrier even got stuck in his Landy. So did we!! Horrid. Glad we don't get anything like that up here!

This is very VERY *****VERY****
early for anything to this extent...

I got a good stock up on hay and shavings
So no little children will go hungry.
Im not having to deal with it alone.
I got the gates re shoveled this am
When i fed and my husband is out snowblowing the driveway.

We have s plow for the truck but snowblowing is a bit harder being out in the weather... but you can toss it up and out of the way
The plow always puts plies in the way someplace.

Managed out after nursery and school run, lovely bright frosty morning. There were roadworks signs all over the end of the lane, but Hogan was fine with them. Apart from cold hands, it was a lovely ride. The sunsets of last night and tonight did not lie..... :) also, Hogan doing his "dog for a day" impression :rolleyes:Screenshot_20191204-201949_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20191204-202047_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20191204-202127_Gallery.jpg
