Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Digging Out

We got dumped on over the last 36 hours!

Not quite a blizzard 'cause it wasn't cold enough at -18C (0 F) to qualify. It was windy enough and it snowed hard enough to close most of the highways in the area, or at least restrict driving. Visibility was close to zero, and it drifted up pretty good.

The hay shelter was in the wind path, but most of the snow blew past.

The trees next to the house were loaded up, as was the driveway and walks. It took about 4 hours to get them cleared out.

On the good side, it was nice and warm in the chicken coop. There appears to be  room at the inn, so I don't see the need to double bunk. Oh, well, chickens!

I am still waiting for you southerners to take me up on an acreage exchange, say early in the new year. Sign up now and avoid the last minute rush!
